Nex to your friends names on your friends list there should be a little venn diagram to see how similar your music taste is with that particular friend. It could be based on what music that you have both listened to, added to playlists or shared with friends.
So, the more songs that you have listened to in common, the more the venn diagram would overlap. It would be like snapchat streaks but less lame.
This could then be a tool to find other profiles of people that have 100% (or close) the same music taste (fully eclipsed venn diagrams), and view theyre playlists and find new music that way.
It would increase the social aspect of Spotify which is something i'd like to be added.
Let me know what you think. I could be on to something.
I have other idea's aswell, so if there are any vacancies going... I'm all ears.
