    I am finding a Plugin that allows me to import friends from various web 2.0 services like Gmail,Facebook,Yahoo etc. Does anyone know about a plugin that would work for this?

    Although it doesn’t let you import friends, the Invite Anyone plugin will allow your site members to invite their contacts to sign up. Although not exactly what you’re looking for, it may be helpful.

    What is it Facebook invite ? Did you mean facebook friends inviter? How do you want to import the friends? You cannot import anybody unless you have their agreement I think. Facebook’s friends are not yours, but facebook’s, you can only import their email addresses and usernames and this plugin should be interesting to, but I think that many desktop apps does it too.

    @4ella: I am not trying to import friends here. I want to provide community members to invite their contact from Gmail,Yahoo or CSV. I got the solution for facebook already. Can you help me with this stuff?

    I’m a bit out of the loop when it comes to the newest BP plugins, but I’m not aware of any that do this.

    Ahh, ok @ankytt I was confused because your question was:

    I am finding a Plugin that allows me to import friends from various …

    How did you resolve your facebook friends? I was trying to get my friend’s email addresses from facebook in order to invite them to my site (but I didn’t want to invite them via fb messages) and till now I didn’t find any application which grabs those email addresses for me, I have also purchased this crap: http://www.rankbook.com/faceemailgrabber.php but it doesn’t work too, if this happily works it grabs 20 names and 2 emails like name@facebook.com , no real email, yahoo facebook import doesn’t work too if you have more than 1000 friends so I gave it up. If you have find some way how to do it I would be happy to hear that. I think that from Yahoo and Gmail you can easily export email addresses to CSV file and then with some Buddypress plugins it should be easy to invite them. I had a problem only with getting Facebook emails.
