How to Friend Someone on Pandora

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.
