[Desktop][Social] Separate friends from artists

Status: Live Idea

It's a little clunky when you're trying to see all the non-artists you follow. Currently, those people are mashed into the complete list of follows, which can be among hundreds or more of artists, and you have to know to go to your profile first to see them. It's also clunky that you can't see all friends on the friend feed or get to a full list of them, but that's a whole other suggestion, lol. Here's what I had in mind to decouple the non-artists on our profile page [image attached]. The concept here would be similar on mobile too.

I agree! I don’t even follow any artists because I hate the way it looks…

Allow filtering of those I am following, such as Artists and People.

 

This is basic

 

I have over 1000 Artists followed so,

I am unable to view the People.

I am unable to view all the Artists.

You could:

  • Remove the feature to view who we are Following
  • Remove the feature to follow People
  • Remove the feature to follow Artists.

 

I know you all love removing features.

 

Anyway, right now it is Broke

i think an option to separate your following list between artists and friends would be really helpful, i know when you click on it it shows the artists on top and regular users on the bottom but still, it would be nice to have them in separate lists and maybe have the option to sort them alphabetically or other options like in the "your library" section where we can sort them by "custom order", "recently added" etc additionally something like "follows you back" would be cool that way you can sort your following list and see who follows you or not

Please vote for the below to bring back the original library organisation/layout where it does not just show 'followed' artists but ALL artists users have liked songs from.
