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.

Lol, and to think i am paying for this service, and they can't offer something as simple as a "following" tab.

You can view a list of everything you follow by going to your own Profile (from your name in the top right of the desktop client) then clicking on "Following" at the top of your profile page.

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.

There is actually a whole section to post in to suggest changes to the service. Just head over to the Ideas Exchange:

I agree. Why give the option to follow my fav artists if I can't have:

 

  • my fav artists' news in the Discovery section
  • a section where I can view all artists I follow
  • a section on my mobile device
  • my fav'ed artists as default when I create a radio station

Follow is making its way onto mobile devices, if you have the new "Me" tab on iOS you should be able to see the list of people you follow.

Hey Peter
I'm running iOS 7.0.2 on my ipad mini
Spotify is up to date
Do I need to update my iOS for that to display?

No, a minor OS version doesn't make a difference.

I think the option simply isn't there.

No, the "Me" tab is currently only rolled out to a proportion of mobile users (as all new features on Spotify roll out in a phased fashion).

Unfortunately if you don't have it yet, there isn't anything you can do other than wait for it to be activated on your account.
