Import Facebook Contacts to Google Plus (+)

I started to work on Google Plus for the past weeks. So, I wanted to share my knowledge about Google+ in this article. I  found that Google Plus did not support the feature of importing contacts from Facebook.  Currently, Google Plus supports importing contacts only from Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail accounts. I know that most of the readers want to add their Facebook contacts on Google Plus. To do this, you need to have a Yahoo ID.

Steps to import Facebook contacts in Google Plus:

1. Login to your Yahoo mail account. In case you don’t have one, you can create a new yahoo account for yourself.

2. Once you login to your Yahoo account, click on the contacts tab. Now click on the import contacts option. Just refer to the following screen shot to better understand about the same.
