You can try just searching the user name multiple ways and look under Profiles from the name search each time. There might be allot of users using some form of that user name. What your friend could do is send you an URI link to one of their user created playlists in a social media page, or a pm, or email message, and when you open the playlist in either the desktop app or webplayer just under the playlist name their correct user name will be shown, and clicking on it will allow you to go directly to their profile page so you can click on their follow button.

Literally the stupidous most confounding way to do the simplist of tasks.

I was having similar trouble adding one of my friends because he gave me the wrong username.  So I just typed out "spotify:user:godfreybk" in an email and told him to copy and paste into his search function.  It worked immediately.  So as long as you know your own username, I would suggest doing that.


This worked for me - go to the top search bar in spotify and enter in the text as described above (not the search in the find friends page).

How does one, stop receiving notifications when someone replies? I posted in this topic last year, and recieve a reply every week. I don't care about this topic anymore, but can't figure out how to unsubscribe from getting notifications. Thank you!

Thanx, I kept going there, but kept missing the Unsubscribe link, beause it was in the middle of the list. I was only looking for it, but in the bottom of that list. This time I slowly scanned and found it!

I have tried multiple times and "spotify:<username>" does not work.  I also do not have facebook. How else can I follow my friend? Seems like there should be a much simpler way than having to contact someone and have them email me a link to one of their playlists.  Just being able to search by isername would seem easiest way to share music with people.

Actually you need to type this in to search and press enter afterwards: 

 

spotify:user:mattjsrules

 

instead, put the username you want where mine is
