Are you sure you are searching for a Spotify username and not a Facebook username?

This really helped for me (the tutorial) since me and my brother are not on 'facebook'. But all I can do is 'follow' him and he can 'follow' me. How can him and I become friends on spotify?

Following and becoming friends are the same thing in Spotify land ;)

The last versions of Spotify for Mac don't show any friends, even though I have connected my account to Facebook and I have many friends. Moreover now I can't find friends in the search box anymore. This app gets worse every new version... Is it just me?

Do you need to have a facebook to follow another user? I dont have a facebook, does that mean I can't follow other users?

thanks

Nope, you can use the follow system without Facebook but its a little more tricky. 

Methods for finding and following your friends depending on your account type are outlined in this tutorial

Can't you see that it is everybody that has problem with this. there are topics I youtube were there a tutorials to help you. if you guys can't make a system that is good and works so well with music it must be possible to make it easier to find friends.

I have a similar problem. But it is the other way around. I don't show up when they're searching for me using my facebook name. 

Also my facebook name and profile picture does not show up in spotify. I've connected spotify to facebook, and can find my friends, but they can't see or find me.

 

Thank you for your time.
