If you are friends on Facebook they should be able to find your profile by typing your real name into the search box on the desktop client and then selecting your profile under the search suggestion "Users". You can also find all of your Facebook friends from the Follow tab on the desktop client. 

 

Of course, that will only work if your account is successfully connected to Facebook, whats your Spotify username @Varianten ?

Can confirm your account is connected to Facebook fine! :) 

When did you connect it, could be a delay in the servers if it was recently. 

 

In the mean time, if you want to copy and paste your friends the link below that will take them to your Spotify profile:

You can search by real name. Profiles will appear at the top of your results window. 

 

Running a full search like below should work for anyone:

If you are friends on Facebook, you should also get the person as a search suggestion providing you haven't blocked them in Spotify:
