    Is there a way to export your friends list from Facebook?

    My wife has decided to ditch her Facebook due to some toxic people and start again.

    Is she going to have to manually add all the friends back that she actually wants?

    Or if she feels guilty about blocking, she can unfollow them.

    if she is worried of people she has removed finder her again, just do a name change on her current profile and change the security settings. Saves all the messing around of re adding people etc.

    Ditching her account, starting a new one and not re-adding the toxic people is just the same as removing them from her current account, surely? The toxic ones are going to be just as butt-hurt that they've not been re-added as they will from being removed from the current one.

    If she's hell bent on a new account and wants to capture her current friends list, there's a Chrome addon called 'Who unfriended me' which maps your friends list and tracks changes to it. I personally wouldn't use it as god knows where your data ends up, but it's popular with a few of my friends who actually give one about who unfriends them.

    I think doing it manually, while a little time consuming, would be the best option.
    It's not something Facebook are going to help you/offer tools to do because it's not something they want to encourage, and any third party tool is going to have serious potential security issues.

    I'd suggest copy pasting names into notepad and adding them back on the new account.
