Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

If you know his Spotify username, then type into the main search box: 

spotify:user:USERNAME

with USERNAME replaced with his Spotify username. That will then load his profile, from which you can add him to your following list. 

 

For example, you can find me: spotify:user:hammeh

Re: How to find friends without facebook in Spotify

Hi,

 

I am trying to access a user through the search engine who is not connected to Facebook. Everytime I try to type her username into the search engine it only looks up songs titled by her username, but it has nothing to do with her playlists. Your description says to input her name into the Spotify search engine, am I using the wrong one?

 

Thank you!

 

Lara

You need to put the whole string into the search box with her username filled in where it says USERNAME :) 

spotify:user:USERNAME

Re: How to find friends without facebook in Spotify

I am a non Facebook user, I can find my friends using the search method but when it shows all there playlists, all I can do is follow it. I can't add my friend, nothing happens when I click on their name in any screen. Please help

Re: How to find friends without facebook in Spotify

Does typing their facebook name into the search bar not find them for you? You don't use the "spotify:user" part for facebook names.

Re: How to find friends without facebook in Spotify

@AaronO - Are you searching for them via Spotify username or real name? 

If you want to do a username search using "spotify:user:username" then be aware you might need to ask your friends for their Spotify username, which is different to their Facebook username. In the case their account was made via Facebook, their username will be a number. 

 

There are some steps in this tutorial which should help you.
