I updated my mac account over summer to the icloud but the address book on my computer is not updated and has less addresses than my icloud address book and the other devices i use like ipad, or the internet. How do i update the address book on my computer (imac) to the icloud.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    First check that all your settings are correct, that contact syncing is checked on all devices (system preferences > iCloud on a mac and settings > iCloud on a iPhone, iPad or iPod).

    Make sure the contacts you are adding are added to your 'iCloud' group and not an 'On My Mac', 'On My Phone' or other non iCloud group (you can do this by checking in groups), non iCloud contacts will not sync.

    If you are sure that everything is set up correctly and your contacts are in the iCloud group, you might try unchecking contact syncing in the iCloud settings, restarting your device and then re-enabling contact syncing.
