How to Export My Linkedin Connections

LinkedIn allows you to export all your connections to an offline file that can be stored on your computer’s hard disk drive. The file can be exported and saved in various formats depending upon the destination service/application where you want to import the contacts.

You might want to export your LinkedIn contacts if you want to add the contacts to any other email account, any email client, to your other LinkedIn profile, or to any Mac computer.

Regardless of the destination where you want to import your LinkedIn connections, the process of exporting your LinkedIn contacts to an offline file is simple.

Here’s how:

    ■Turn on computer system.
    ■Open your favorite web browser.
    ■Type in the address bar, and press Enter to open the website.
    ■If you are not already logged-in, provide login credentials in the appropriate fields and click the Sign In button.

    ■On the Home page that comes up, click the Connections menu from the menu bar at the top.

    ■On the Connections page, under the upper section, click the Settings icon (gear icon) at the top-right corner.

    ■From the Advanced Settings section in the right pane, click the Export LinkedIn Connections link.

    ■On the next page, click the Export to: drop-down list.
    ■From the displayed options, click the desired file format in which you want to export your contacts.
