Well, I connected to my friends via Facebook.

So that was nice. And once I did that, there's just a feed that comes up every time I open spotify (on the "What's new" tab) that shows what people have published, shared, etc. Which is great. You can share and subscribe to these playlists too. And if your friends aren't on Facebook, you can look them up via their usernames (if you know them) by entering spotify:user:username in the search box. So if you add me, for example (my username is the same as mine on here), you will see all the playlists I share.
And then a friend of mine actually started a collaborative playlist that anyone with whom she shares it can contribute to. I'm not sure how she did it, but all i have to do is drag songs in from my itunes. You can also choose to share any playlists you already have set up on your itunes. It is supereasy.
Does all of that make sense? I am getting obsessed with spotify.
edit: oh, and also, besides the What's New feed, once you've connected with friends, you can also click on them individually and see playlists/songs they've shared.
