By LaDonna Hadley

Learn how to connect your Facebook account to your Yahoo account and import your friends into your contacts.

Connecting your Facebook account to your Yahoo account allows you to import your Facebook friends as Yahoo contacts. Connecting also allows you to see Facebook profile pictures in your Yahoo inbox when you receive emails.

From your Yahoo Mail page, click the Gear icon. Choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

Step 2

Go to Accounts.

In the pop-up, click Accounts. In the Connected Accounts section, click Connect next to Facebook.

Tip

You'll be asked to sign in to your Facebook account if you aren't already signed in.

Step 4
