    I need to extract all the email addresses of friends from a facebook profile.
    I tried the old yahoo tricks but It seems not working anymore. Importing facebook contacts to yahoo email works like a charm, but the problem is exporting. It seems that facebook imported contacts are ignored when exporting to a cvs. I tried multiple times with multiple profiles, and it has exported only others non-facebook contacts (yes, I selected all the contacts). I tried hotmail too but it's limited to 100 contacts.

    I tried another full version software named FacebookBuzz, but it's not working here.
    Any suggestions?

    I almost forgot to say that I tried a facebook app named "friendstogmail", and another app named "facebook friends export to cvs" but with no luck, because they won't allow emails extraction.
    And I tried the opensource tool OpenInviter but the facebook plugin it's broken (not update) and I'm unable to retrieve contacts...

    If the Infos tab of a Facebook profile contains an email, so you'll can extract it via this simple regular expression :
    Code:
    [A-Z0-9._%+-]+# 064;[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,6}
    Then, just use search-and-replace to replace # 064; by @.

    To extract this kind of datas, you can use this small tool :
    Code:

    PS : Remove space in "# 064;".

    Sending emails to not opt-in list in bulk is... SPAM.
    That's all, in my opinion.

    Not opt-in = SPAM.

    It's you who is HORRIBLE !

    Seriously, why do you don't like CodeCanyon ?
    There are tons of good scripts and nice tools.

    I thought to use a thing like that, I could easily create a code in perl or python for a grabber like this.
    The real problem is that only a small minority of contacs have the email contained in infos.

    So it's necessary a tool that can access directly the facebook API. Like yahoo importer and OI (when it works ofc).The Facebook API is not familiar to me so I cant easily code a direct tool...

    Yes I am working on the same thing. Yahoo will not export Facebook imported data. I am trying to find some kind of email harvester/spider/grabber/extractor that will let you log into your yahoo email then scrape all the emails from my contacts list. Anyone have any programs in mind that can do this task? I have tried about a half a dozen programs or so and none of them will do what I need to do.

    There was another email site gmx that would import Facebook data and export it to a csv file no problem. This site is not working anymore. Facebook must have disabled them from doing this.

    you can "print" your yahoo contact and it will display all of them on a web page. from there - copy and paste into excel

    Yes, gmx is not working anymore. And I agree,facebook has surely asked yahoo to stop exporting contacs.
    The only software that works are: Social Email Extractor
    But it costs $50 per month, ridiculus price...I never tried but I bet it supports fb API...I was wondering if it's available somewhere a nulled version.
    ...and facebook email grabber. This will not work with fb API, it's a simple grabber, but it can be useful too. Too bad it's a bit bugged.


    Nice idea, maybe it's the best way actually. Another way it's to switch to email classic and to simply copy&paste contacts.
