That's interesting because that's how I find the music I want to listen to, but the artists I'm following. I don't use playlists for that, and there's nothing else I can think of that's like looking through a cd rack of artist names.
That's not intuitive. If I have to come here to find out how to do something, there's something wrong with the application interface design. Applications should have an intuitive interface. I'm a professional UI designer, I know what I'm talking about. Spotify failed in that area. I commented on this thread hoping they do something about it.
Going to your personal profile isn't intuitive when you want to see who you're following when all over tasks they've got setup in the menu system. I'm guessing many people think that profile is for updating things about yourself.
They could add an section to 'playback' titled 'artists' and another for 'playlists' Having those under that menu makes sense. I usually don't look at friends to see what they're listening to because my taste in music differs from my friends.
They could also add a section / form for suggestions so I can easily get to the suggestions spotify has for me. Again, something that should be under playback. Alternately, they could put these under "view" too, or create a new dropdown.
Making a better program requires feedback from its users. Hopefully someone from Spotify reads this, and does something about it.
