Your account is linked to facebook and you search for facebook friends differently. Type your facebook name into the main search bar and it appears in the results list. "spotify:user:username" is used to search for accounts not linked to facebook.

How about replacing `spotify:user:[username]` with @[username] ?

I guess that would make sense, might be worth suggesting it over on the Ideas Exchange:
http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/idb-p/ideaexchange

It would require a little code to do the translation in the background, as spotify:user:username is actually the identifier for the page, similar to identifiers for tracks.

I love spotify but they do make some things very difficult when they could be so so easy... i cant add my friends and i have premium. Very annoying. Come in Spotify. Sort it out.

Don't use the brackets [ ]. It should work.

It worked for me, just paste "spotify:user:" in the search engine and directly after that (without a space or { in between,) enter their username. it worked when I did it!
