I’ve experimented with a number of ways to transfer a Facebook friend list to Google+ and found the following method still works.  Use this technique before Facebook plugs it up:

1.  Log into (or sign up for) a Yahoo! account.

2.  Click into your address book.

3.  Select “Import Contacts”

4.  Click on the Facebook option.

5.  When the popup box appears, click OK to share contacts.  (Depending on your browser, you may need to enable popups to see this box.)  Like magic, the data representing your Friends list will begin downloading.

6.  Open a new tab in your browser and log into your Google+ account.  Click on the Circles tab.  Click on “add and invite” and select the Yahoo! icon.  Presto!  Your Facebook friends will now be imported.
