I agree. I'm a digital designer with years of professional experience, and this is not intuitive, lacking alignment with best practices. Your "Follow" tab to the left needs to behave similarly to the other tabs. It needs to give you the ability to access your own list AND the ability to discover new folks. Think of it similarly to your "Radio" tab: once a user clicks, they see their chosen stations module, but there are additional secondary modules with recommended stations.

When I click my name, then Profile, it says Following(196), but when I click the Following tab, only 3 artists are listed - there used to be a whole bunch - like all of them - what happened to them?  Why are they not listed?

So, it's been 2 years since the start of this thread and still there is no easy way implemented to find your following artists. And there is no way to do it at all on the mobile and PS4 versions of Spotify. You guys are really terrible. How can I subscribe to something that is so hard to use and gets even worse whit every update ( (cough) the removal of the minimze to try option (cought))...

Hey guys not sure if anyone has answered this in completion. 

 

Spotify app on Windows PC

In the top right hand side you will see a picture of yourself or any associated picture you choose for your acct., along with your name. Click on your name. This takes you to your profile, here you will see five tabs. The fourth tab to the right is called FOLLOWING. Select that and you will see all the bands that your following. 

 

Apple iPone Sportify app (IOS)

while anywhere in the app click on the three parallel dashes, the menu option in the top left corner of the app. You will see the options, Search, Browse, Running, Activity, Radio and Your Music; there you will see at the bottom left corner of the app your account photo and your name. Click on your name, this will take you to your profile in the app. There you will see three tabs (Playlists, Followers and Following), Following will be the third tab to the right. Select and enjoy. 

 

PS3 & PS4

Currently, due to the terribly limited Spotify app, which resembles Windows 8 Tiles, there is no way to access your profile. The logical way of selecting your name and Picture leads to two options, Log Out and Show Licenses. I'm paying you monthly why do I give a crap about licenses. 

 

Hope this helps, hopefully Spotify makes some improvements to the UI on all apps, love it, but seriously hope somebody is listening.

Hi hchawdhry

This helped because it made me look again at the same menus!

A few months ago these menus would not display all your followed artists. Just a small selection of them (~100).

Now it looks like they fixed it and it seems to show all of them.

BTW on Spotify app they also simply appear under 'Artists', and this is sorted A-Z unlike the 'Following' list, which is all over the place and unsortable.

Actually scratch that - it still doesn't show them all in the Artist view. It shows more of them than before, but not all of them.

Hi guys,

 

I'm experiencing the same problem here ...

 

A bug that that has not been solved for many years (quite annoying and easy to solve) is not a bug ... it's a FEATURE !

 

What better way to lock users to spotify than hidding them the list of the artists they like ... no backup possible, no migration possible.

 

Maybe if we make enougth noise, there will be change.

 

Any way don't count on spotify to save the list of artist you like ...

Maybe someone with enougth time and motivation can try to get some fix with the web API ...
