Profiles and Users are the same thing, I can seem to search by real name now even for people I am not friends with on Facebook. Just search for a name then press "See More" beside profiles at the top of the search window.

Would this be possible if I'm not connected with facebook?

You could search for others who are connected to Facebook (and therefore profile has their real name), but they wouldn't be able to find your account unless they did the spotify:user:Username search.

I'm sorry. Doesn't work for me. Since I downloaded Spotify the Friends section shows no friends, even though my account is connected with my Facebook account (but I don't log in to Spotify via Facebook). In the last versions I can't even find friends with the search box, and yet I have plenty of them.

I still didn't find her, even with what her name is on FB so she must not have connected on spotify. I'll ask her next time I see her for a link to a playlist. Y'all have been very helpful, thanks. I would suggest that you guys make it to where every user has their full name at least in their profile info, and make the user search available for any first and last name. That would be user friendly to us without the facebooks. I love your product, keep up the good work!

I'm looking for a friend and searching for them, I clicked Show All but no Users section is displaying...  When I try adding spotify:user before the name the search doesn't function at all.

The spotify:user search function requires you to know the exact Spotify username of your friend. If your friends username is Abc123 and you search for Abc12, nothing will show up.
