Can't find Facebook friend who has Spotify

Hi

 

I want to follow a facebook friend on Spotify - However only a few of my facebook friends show on spotify - this guy definately has spotify but doesn't show on my list of FB friends to follow.

 

How can I find him on Spotify?  I have tried all the Spotify tutorials (I don't always seem to have the buttons/functions mentioned though).

 

Thanks

Easiest way to do it is to log into your online overview and get your numerical username:
https://www.spotify.com/account/overview/

On your friends Spotify, you can then easily find your profile by searching for:
spotify:user:<your username>

Did you include the "spotify:user" part?

Does he have a Spotify username so you could search for him by typing spotify:user:username in the search box?
What's a Spotify Rock Star, and how do I become one?

Does your friend have Facebook (and you are friends on Facebook) or are you searching for a username?

Peter, I have a Facebook account, but the account in which I'm trying to find mine, is a Spotify account made with a Gmail account.

 

Thanks for replying!! 🙂

Use a numerical ID? What the hell are you guys thinking? Just fix the broken search, we're on 2015 come on

HI there! 

I can't see my facebook friends on the search box, it says here 0 friends on Spotify (which is impossible.)

I also can't find my numerical username.

I always log in to Spotify through my Facebook account.

Please help! Many thanks!! xxx

I can't find my facebook friends on spotify, It is so bad. We are on 2017 and still faceing this types of problems. I pay every mont for premium, can you help me

I had the same problem. Let me write my solution here because I believe many users did the same what I did at the registration when I connected with my Fb account.

When it came to "continue with my Fb account" I clicked on the Edit field and selected visibility "Only me". Then The number of Facebook friends that Spotify can display is 0.

So first I had to go back to Facebook settings/Apps/Logged in with Facebook, looked for Spotify and changed it to be visible for all my friends.

The next and last step was to logout from Spotify on all devices, then log in again, see the friends list and... surprize, there were all of them!
