While waiting for the full implementation of Yahoo’s planned integration with Facebook Connect which was announced in December last year, Yahoo wants to give you a sampler of how this will be Â integrated across its sites and services. So in case you’re still maintaining and using Yahoo Mail, you can now easily add your Facebook friend’s email addresses to Yahoo Contacts.
Of course, integrating these two Contact lists will enable you to quickly communicate with your contacts where ever you may be at this very moment. Whether you’re Â browsing Yahoo Sports and you find something which a Facebook contact would find interesting, you can do so now in just one click. In fact, you simply type the first letter of your contact’s name inside Yahoo! Mail and it will quickly suggest contact names that start with that letter.
To connect your Facebook friends’ email addresses to your Yahoo Contacts’ account, simply go to the Import Contacts landing page, select Facebook, enter your Facebook login credentials and then Yahoo will authenticate your account and starts integrating the two email addresses lists.
Then, Â you can check out which of your Facebook friends were added to your Yahoo Contacts. What’s good about this feature is that it won’t create duplicate entries for your contacts.
So there. Are you going to integrate your Facebook friends’ email addresses to your Yahoo Contacts?
