How do I export my LinkedIn connections to a file?

Note that the LinkedIn code is buggy, but you must do the following in order to export your LinkedIn connections:

  • Click Contacts, then Connections on the left hand side of your profile
  • At the bottom, click Export Connections
  • Export to a CSV file
    • it won't do it immediately
    • you will get a yellow bar on top of your browser, and you must click it in order to download the file
  • SAVE the file, but save it as a .csv file instead of a text file

If you want to get just the email addresses into a file:

  • open the file in Excel
  • delete all columns other than the email address column
  • save the file as a .txt file

Good luck, and if this is unclear or could be improved, email me at
