How to Get the Facebook Phonebook

by Andrea Ruiz

Facebook Phonebook is a Facebook application that allows you to filter your friends on the social network into an organized list of phone numbers. Facebook Phonebook filters your friends by the phone numbers they list in their Facebook profiles, though members can opt out of the application from their privacy settings if they wish. Facebook Phonebook also lists phone numbers for your Facebook friends imported from your phone, if your phone has a Facebook application. Facebook Phonebook is an easy way to keep a list of phone numbers for your Facebook friends in one organized list.

Step 1

Log into Facebook and click the "Account" link in the upper right corner.

Step 2

Click "Edit Friends" in the drop-down sub-menu that appears.

Click the "Contacts" tab in the left column. This displays your entire Facebook Phonebook contacts list.


  • If your phone number appears on the phone list without your permission, you can remove your phone number from the Facebook profile in one of two ways. You can remove your phone number on your profile, which can be problematic, since Facebook uses your phone number to verify your account. You can also go to your privacy settings under "Account" in the upper right corner, then click the "Custom" tab on the left. Click the "Customize Settings" link and customize your contact information to the privacy level you desire.
