Public Profile and followers

Hi,

 

I have two questions after updating to the latest version of Spotify.

 

1. How can I view my public profile? I used to be able to click on my user, and then Profile and see only the playlists I've shared, but in the latest version I see all my playlists, and I'm only sharing 3 or 4 out of hundreds of playlists, so either it's not my public profile, or all of my playlists have been shared. 

2. On the same profile I can see that i have 546 followers, which is identical to the number of followers on my playlist with the most followers. However, I also have a playlist with almost 400 followers, and unless all of these are also following my other playlist, this number is incorrect. Is this a bug? Being able to see all followers is a really nice feature by the way.

 

Also, the spell check does not accept "Spotify", or "playlists" ;-)

 

Best regards,

Øyvind

Hey!

 

1. I've just checked your account from my version of Spotify and I can only see three shared playlists. So others shouldn't be able to see them either. However, when looking at your own account, you see everything.

 

2. Followers should work a little differently for your account and your playlists - I believe it takes a cross section. For example, one playlist I have seems to have 200 followers, but my personal account has less followers than that. If someone is following your profile, then they will get updates when you create a new public playlist and so on. However, just following the playlist will mean they get updates on that playlist only. 

 

Sadly the spellchecker is one built by our forum people, so we can't actually add Spotify to it at the moment! Soon, hopefully!

From your Spotify PC app there is a link that copies the profile url.  Copy it. Paste it into your web browser. A pop-up will ask if you want to launch the Spotify app, click no.  You will be able to see your public profile from there.

Hi David!

 

Thanks for your answers. Is there any way I can see my public profile, without using someone elses account?

 

Best regards,

Øyvind

for me it works exactly like before, using the same method as you mentioned before. 

 

for all i'm concerned there is too much "following" in this new version,

there's enough of that everywhere else already.

Just so we're clear, with the new update, it is NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO VIEW YOUR PUBLIC PROFILE?!?  

 

This is a major issue with the user experience and will need to be fixed immediately .  PLEASE!

David: pleaee explain how your answer qualifies as having solved the problem. The problem, as described by the OP, is that it is no longer possible for a user to see their public profile without logging in as someone else. That's not a problem your answer can solve. That's a problem your design team can and absolutely should correct. As far as I can tell, you don't even understand what the problem even IS.

In my latest update of Spotify, when I go to my Profile Overview, I can see a small lock icon and word "Secret" under each of my Playlist icons/album cover collage. I haven't meant to share any lists so this is good. The only things I've shared are collaborated playlists and those you can't make public like your own personal lists.

 

oyvindb, Can you see this icon too now?

I have the same problem, loads of playlists and i want to be able to see which ones i am publicly sharing without having to scroll down through each and every one to see if it is locked or shared, i am shocked there is still seemingly no way to view my public profile as another person and ultimately if not fixed im likely to stop using spotify or i am likely to keep them private which i think defeats the spotify goal.

Hello, I have a problem with one of my playlist.. The playlist followers are not being counted since yesterday afternoon, and I have recieved more than 400 notifications of new followers during today for this playlist. The other playlists don't have this problem, and the new followers are being add normally. What can I do? 

Thanks!
