[All Platforms][Social] More social media platforms to find friends

Status: Case Closed

In Spotify we can find friends only using Facebook, but most of my friends aren't on Facebook, including me. It would be really helpful if Spotify helps us to find friends with various other social media like Instagram, Pinterest, Tik Tok, or Snap, per example.

Good idea! Also: I don't use Facebook. Would it be possible to hide all bars and more to request to be linked to 'friends'?

Or perhaps be able to share songs with friends from within spotify like this suggestion that got closed down from 2017 - https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Sharing-songs-with-Followers/idi-p/4380895

Currently you can only "find friends" by connecting to facebook. I don't have facebook, so i think it would be cool to find twitter friends and friends from your phone contacts?

I know spotify don't seem to care so much about making the app a more social experience but lots of people enjoy sharing music with friends.

Also just.... being notified when people follow your playlists (+ options to follow playlists anonymously), being notified of new followers etc. Would love to have a more social experience on the app.

Hi. My idea is simple. I want to connect my friends on Instagram or Whatsapp to see what my friends are listening to or what public playlist they have. Of course, respecting the privacy of each person. Showing or hiding the activity of friends. Whether or not you want to connect with different friends.

Have a nice day 🙂

Being able to connect through GitHub along with other platforms (other than FB) would be nice to be able to listen to music that others enjoy while programming on different projects.

idea 1:

  • I think a way to message other Spotify users would be cool, if you find someone with a similar music taste to you and you want to either compliment them/make friends with the
  •  or simply a way to connect your social media pages to your account so people can follow you there, which is probably easier

I don't use facebook so I cannot add friends. Suggestion - Remove Facebook, Add Snapchat. Or just add all social media platforms
