    If you have a big list of active emails, is there an easy way to import them into say an AOL or Yahoo account to use to add friends on Facebook?

    Hopefully that makes sense, I could have swore I watched a video of someone with software that did it for you.

    Thanks in advance!

    Facebook has a friend importer all you need is to save the list as a csv file

    surely this will trigger the ''you are adding friends too quickly'' nonsense facebook has on

    Even when you add them through your email? That makes no sense on their part then, the option to add friends that you have emails would be completely redundant.

    Why would they put it there if they didn't want you to add your contacts with it?
    But if it doesn't work you could always use a custom iMacros script that adds friends one by one..

    What if the emails are in a large document but it's not just a straight list of emails, it has other words and characters in between. Is there a tool that will just grab the emails out of the document?

    They have silly limits :) i've done this to 100 contacts from my hotmail list and they put me a "ban" not to use that option in a day or so. Adding friends on Facebook is a real pain now

    What if you had thousands of legit friends on your email and you were new to Facebook... They are going to do that to new users? Why have the feature if you can't even use it?

    Best would probably to email thm directly and tell them to add you for some important reason.

    In my opinion 30/day is good...
    However it depends on many factors as...
    - If they are already registered on FB
    - The ratio frindership accepted/declined...and so on :)
