Importing Facebook Contacts

I know on Skype for Windows, the option to import Facebook contacts into Skype is available.  Is there any way to do this for a Mac?

Re: Importing Facebook Contacts

Hi,


Unfortunately Skype for Mac does not have a contact importer, therefore it is not possible to import then from Facebook. 

 

However, we released a Skype for Mac 5.4 beta version yesterday, which has the option to connect to Facebook, see your Facebook friends news feeds and talk with them from Skype. 

 

You can download Skype from here: http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-computer/macosx/beta/

Tried the solution above, installed the beta software, still no facebook integration.  I don't get it.

Re: Importing Facebook Contacts

Hi, 

 

Please make sure that your contact list has at least 3 contacts, or that you have made a call to one of your contacts. 


After that the Facebook connection should become available. Exact instructions on how to connect to Facebook on Skype for Mac 5.4 beta can be found here: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA11065
