One of the best features of Spotify (besides all that unlimited streaming) is the ability to share playlists with your friends.Spotify’s desktop app has built-in Facebook integration, making it easy to subscribe to playlists your friends make public.

But if you’re one of the new Spotify users in the U.S., you’ve probably noticed most of your friends haven’t signed up yet. (We only have six Facebook friends sharing playlists on Spotify right now.)
