How to Friend Someone on Pandora

By Aaron Parson

Get social with your music by following your friends on Pandora Radio to keep up with their new stations and liked songs.

Pandora Radio doesn't keep track of two-way friendships, but it does let you follow other users, in the vein of Twitter and Tumblr. When you follow people on Pandora, you see their activity on the site, including their likes and stations. Pandora lets you follow anyone with a public profile, helping you discover new music right away; no need to deal with friend invites.

Tip

If your friends don't have public profiles, they won't show up in the search results at all.

Pandora App

Step 1

Back out of the currently playing station, if you have one open, and switch to the Feed tab. This tab displays your friends' activity, after you follow them. Tap Find Friends to follow new people.

Tip

This step varies slightly depending on your device. On Android phones, you'll see the search box directly on the Feed tab. On iOS and Android tablets, the "Find Friends" link appears as an icon of a person by a plus sign.

Step 2

Search for a friend.

Enter a friend's name or email address and tap Search or Enter on the keyboard. Search by email address, if you know it, to avoid results from people with similar names.

Tip

Tap Facebook Connect to link your Pandora and Facebook accounts, search for all of your Facebook friends and pick who you want to follow.

Step 3

Search results.

Tap a result in the list to preview a person's profile, and then tap the back arrow to return to the search results. Once you find the right person, tap the + icon to start following.

Tip

Check the Profile tab to see who you follow and who follows you.

Pandora Website

Step 1

Open the Music Feed and find people.

Click Music Feed on the Pandora home page after signing in. Once you start following your friends, this page displays their activity. To get started, open the Find People tab.

Step 2

Search by name or email.

Enter a friend's name or email address in the search bar and click Find.

Tip

Click Login With Facebook and sign in to your Facebook account to search for all of your Facebook friends at once, and then pick which ones to follow.

Step 3

Start following a friend.

Click Follow next to your friend's name to start following.

Tip

To help figure out which of several results is your friend's account, click on each person's name to see their full profiles.
