exporting contacts from gmail/google apps

: : for google apps : :

You can quickly export your Gmail Contacts list into a CSV file. Here's how:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Contacts along the side of any Gmail page.
  3. From the More actions drop-down menu, select Export....
  4. Choose whether to export all contacts or only one group.
  5. Select the format in which you'd like to export your contacts' information. Please note, some of these formats can lose some contact information.
    • To transfer contacts between Google accounts, use the Google CSV format. This is the recommended way to back up your Google Contacts.
    • To transfer contacts to Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, or various other apps, use the Outlook CSV format.
    • To transfer contacts to Apple Address Book, use the vCard format.
  6. Click Export.
  7. Choose Save to Disk then click OK.
  8. Select a location to save your file, and click OK.

Interestingly, clicking on More using Google Chrome on a mac doesn't work?!! So try using Firefox instead :)

comment as you not your page on facebook

: : for facebook : :

If I am an admin of a Facebook Page, how do I comment on a post using my own identity as opposed to the page's identity?

Facebook has finally made it possible for you to comment on your pages with your own identity. Go to Edit Page --> Your Settings --> Posting Preferences. Uncheck the box to be able to post on your page as yourself not the page.
