Sharing playlists, chatting in the messages, and finding users should be much easier for people that do not have a Facebook Account. For example, if the user does not have a Facebook account the friends tab is useless. You should be able to have "Friends" without Facebook. There should be a "Friend" button and a "Follow" button when viewing a Spotify user. I suggest creating these tabs (feel free to critique): 1. Friends - You friend people by clicking the "Friend Request" (or similar) button on a spotify user's page. You could also show suggested friends pulled from the users Facebook friends (and friends of friends) that are using Spotify, and you could add a "Email" button for friends that are not on Spotify yet. 2. Following - These are the People, Bands, and Playlists that you follow by clicking the "Follow" button 3. Users/Playlists (something along the lines of "Popular Users And Playlists") - This shows the most popular Bands and Users with the most followers. Secondly, you could include something like "Most Popular Playlists" or playlists that have the most followers. Lastly, I think finding users on Spotify that don't have Facebook should be much easier. In order for someone to find me they have to type "spotify:user:username". There should be somewhere where you can search for users and follow them. I encourage finding new ways and possibilities to knot this together. I think the "social+music" thing to Spotify could really be enhances here. It would help to bring many more new users to Spotify and make it a much more enjoyable experience. PS It would be really cool if people could add names and pictures to their profiles even if they don't have Facebook! Thanks!

I'd like to see a new feature introduced so I can i.e.. follow a playlist but skip specific tracks/albums/artists automatically. I understand that I could just copy that playlist, but since many are updated that's a job I'd have to do over and over again for each playlist.
This would allow me to keep updated on new music automatically, but save the irritation of skipping the tracks that I don't like over and over again.
- Since I'm new here, this might be possible, so if it is - hooray!, and please let me know.

The starred playlist should only appear if songs are in it. I feel like the playlist local songs shouldn't even show or there should at least be a setting to turn the playlist off. I love the new way to be able to sort a playlist. But I would love a collection section on the left that allows you to play music like in the iPod app that all we all know and love. By accessing music through artists, genres, songs, etc. I feel like either way spotify needs this, but if they added this collection... Then there could be a setting in the settings section, so that all music in your "collection" is available offline. And I hate how playlists have that green arrow for being offline. Make it a subtle green dot. And I also feel like the started playlist should either have it's own section or should be remade as a "to check out" section. Thanks
