How to E-mail Your Facebook Friends
Facebook limits your messages to 20 people at a time. To send a fundraising or recruitment e-mail to a large audience use should export your Facebook friends’ e-mail addresses into your personal e-mail or Participant Center. Yahoo recently released a new feature that does this for you. Once logged into your Yahoo account, click on contacts and then select the option to import your Facebook friends. Yahoo will take you through the process step by step. If you don’t have a Yahoo account, you can create one to get your Facebook contacts and then export them from Yahoo into the e-mail program of your choice.
