Can you see who likes or follows your Spotify playlists?
Spotify playlists are a major part of people’s daily lives. Whether listeners or artists put them together, playlists can garner a lot of attention—and follows. If you’re someone who actively monitors your presence on the streaming platform, you may be wondering how to see who follows your Spotify playlists. Let’s discuss that.
THE SHORT ANSWER
Currently, Spotify does not give users the option to see who follows their playlists.
You can see how many users follow or like your playlist. To do this, navigate to your playlist on Spotify and open it. Followers appear as likes next to your name underneath the playlist name.
Can you see playlist followers or who likes your playlists?
Currently, Spotify does not allow you to see who likes your playlist or follows it.
Spotify users used to be able to see who followed their playlists. However, in March 2013, Spotify removed this feature in favor of “listener privacy.”
This has been a hotly debated topic for years, and people first started asking Spotify to return the feature to the app immediately after they removed it.
Privacy is always a concern on social media, and even though Spotify is more of a streaming platform, it’s always good to keep tabs on who is following you. If you value your privacy and want this feature to come back, the original Live Idea is still present on the Spotify Community. In 2019, the status for the idea was set to Not Right Now. However, over 24,000 users have voted in favor of this feature and you can vote for it as well at this link.
