LinkedIn has got back its tool for exporting contacts. The company quietly removed the tool on Thursday and asked users to request an archive of their data instead, a process which could take up to 72 hours to complete. LinkedIn’s export contacts feature allows you to easily export your own LinkedIn connections as a downloadable CSV or VCF file. That includes contacts you made while using the service, as well as any you manually imported into LinkedIn.
When the feature was pulled, users complained they didn’t want to wait up to three days to get their own contacts out of LinkedIn. They wanted to be able to export immediately as before. Company has got back tool guaging the user unhappiness.
