Import Facebook Friends To Google+

By | July 5, 2011 | 9 Comments

Even though the plus.google.com service is not yet publicly available and some people feel like the guy above, it does not stop developers from jumping into the Google+ boat early.

One of such people has already created a Google Chrome extension (Facebook Friend Exporter), which will export your Facebook contact data to Google Contacts or CSV.

What should be noted is this: according to the developer, as of the 5th of July, Facebook is working hard to prevent you from exporting your friends data and has already removed their emails from your profile.

However, the guy behind Facebook Friend Exporter is already working on a new version that is set to use the different approach to bypass Facebook trickery.

    Looks like Facebook are all hands to deck to try and stop Google stealing their market.   I would far prefer to use Google than Facebook, and would really like a Google+ invite, but Am not stuid enough list my email address in the myriad of sites offering invites…  (AKA selling your address to spammers)

    Google+ is the biggest pile of crap I’ve ever had the “chance” of using… I really don’t get it, I mean, it doesn’t really do anything…

    I’m sensing Wave Round 2.

    Surely such an extension will be made for Firefox and perhaps Opera as well, right?

        I’m pretty sure ‘Nobody’ is a bot after it repeated posts 9 times in the market share blog entry.

          there is Nobody and nobody, ie. certain Opera Employee (starts with H) troll that this time decided to steal nobody’ identity
