How To Find Facebook Email Address Legally When It Is Hidden

At some point or another, you will find yourself looking for a Facebook user's email address. In the past, you can look up for the email address of any Facebook contact by simply going to his or her profile's "About" tab. Today, due to Facebook's privacy updates, majority of the user's email address are replaced with a Facebook email address. When people send you an email using this Facebook email address, their message would not go to the email account you signed up with but rather on your Facebook inbox. In several cases, the message will be sent to the "Other" folder.

What many do not know is that there is a legal way to find the email address of all your Facebook contacts. If you are an internet marketer who uses Facebook to gain business leads, this can be a goldmine.

Additionally, there are several methods on how to get the email address of all your friends. The first option is to sync all your Facebook contacts on your smartphone. However, if you don't want to download these information to your phone and would rather have them in a more organized file, you can do this with the help of your Yahoo! email account. If you don't have a Yahoo! account, you can easily sign up for one through their website. (It's free.)

Here are the steps on how to find the email address of all your Facebook contacts through Yahoo! Mail.

1. Once you are logged in to your Yahoo! mail account, go to "Contacts" tab and then click on the "Import Contacts" button.

2. Click the Facebook icon to begin importing your friend's contact details.

3. Importation may take a while especially if you have several connections. You will be notified when the action is finished. Click "Done" and you will now see the imported email addresses on your Yahoo! contact list.

4. If you want to export your contact list to a CSV file, note that the option is there but will not work for your Facebook contacts. The work around is to view your contact list in "Print" form and then copy-paste them to excel or notepad.
