Today there is word that a virus is going around in the form of an email to you from LinkedIn. Hopefully you haven’t received such an email. Which reminded me of a recent post I recently contributed to my LinkedIn Group.
Here is what I said. . .
If you haven’t exported your LinkedIn Connections yet you should. What if for some reason all of your connections would suddenly disappear on Linkedin? Would you remember the 100, 200, 500++ connections? Chances are the answer is no. So take a minute to export your contacts.
Here are the very simple steps to export your connections. . .
First Click Contacts: A list of your contacts will populate.
Second: Look down in the lower left hand side of the contacts for “Export Connections” and click on it.
Next: Select how you want to export the file. For example Microsoft Outlook or Yahoo Mail or Mac OS X Address Book. Select one and click export.
Finally: Open the downloaded file and a spreadsheet will appear with your contacts.
There are also directions on how to import the newly exported files on page where you select how to export them.
Please let me know if this was helpful…and please share this with others.
