It can be very time consuming to go through hundreds of Facebook profiles trying to locate e-mail addresses. Facebook has many apps that can export some contact information, birthdays and names of your friends, but none can export the email addresses of all of your Facebook friends, because Facebook's API does not allow Facebook apps to directly access users' e-mail information. You can work around this issue by using Facebook's relationship with Yahoo! to retrieve the email addresses of your friends as well as their contact information.
