Spotify, Facebook & Sharing

Posted by Jon Stuebe on .

From time to time I've had friends who created their spotify account with connecting it to facebook. What they didn't know was when you do this, you don't have the easy ability to search for your friends since spotify has no way of knowing about these connections.

In the past has happened to me is one friend want's to send me a song or I want to send one to him/her and can't since I'm not friends with them or following them on spotify. Here is my solution to the problem.

First, have your friend who doesn't have a facebook connected account visit their own profile. There are two different sets of directions depending on if your using the desktop app or web app so I'll seperate out the steps.

Desktop Application:

  1. Open Profile
  2. Click on button directly below their name and select "Copy Spotify URI"
  3. Then simply send that to your friend
  4. Paste it in the search box and click on the follow button for the user.

Web Application

  1. Open Profile
  2. Click on button directly below their name and select "Copy Spotify URL"
  3. Then simply send that to your friend
  4. Paste it in the browser and click on the follow button for the user.

Hope that helps.
