After you use the Facebook people search tool with your email contact list you can click the "Other Tools" option to continue your search. After clicking that icon, you will see that you have the option to upload a contact file that you have prepared on your computer, search for high school or college classmates, and even current and former coworkers.
The "Upload Contact File" option allows you to upload your contacts from your Apple Mail, Outlook Express, or Mozilla Thunderbird programs.
All you do is click the "Browse" button and browse to your contact file. If you aren't sure how to create a contact file, click the "How to create a contact file" link.
You will get instructions for how to create a contact file from a variety of sources including LinkedIn, Windows Mail, and Palm Desktop. Once you make a file, you upload it to Facebook and the Facebook system will search for matches and list them for you so you can make connections.
hen you click one of the other options, you will be taken to a search page that lets you find people by their name, or look for people from your school or college. Optionally, you can search for people in your graduating class. You can also enter your company name or the name of a former employer. Facebook will scour the site, looking for people that match your criteria.
Using each of these methods will help you find the most people possible on Facebook with surprisingly little effort.
