An anonymous reader writes: LinkedIn has removed the option to export your contacts. Instead, the company is asking users to request an archive of their data, but that process can take up to 72 hours to complete. Before it disappeared today, LinkedIn’s export contacts feature allowed you to easily export your own contacts as a downloadable CSV or VCF file. That included contacts you made while using the service, as well as any you manually imported into LinkedIn. Now that feature is gone, without even a simple warning.
