    So you know how facebook and twitter import the contacts from your phone and add people like that? I have like 200k phone numbers of people who have called a taxi in the past 2 years in my area.

    How do I get those into a phone so facebook and the rest can look for friends for me?

    only if people have givin up their phone number at registration and agreed that people can find them by phone number you can import them... I may be wrong on this, but that is what i've seen some years ago

    You could do a 2 step process, reverse phone -> name lookup at your local whitepages, then bot facebook searching by those names in your region. Failure prone, but I can' t see how you' d do otherwise.
