Make sure your soundcloud account is linked to facebook and visit this page https://soundcloud.com/people (If facebook is not linked it can be done at the bottom of that page)
thank you for the kind reply but when i click on the tab that says to connect with fb, nothing happens
No problem, they've helped me here so I tried to help you, sorry it didn't work! You may need to connect your account via the connections page http://soundcloud.com/settings/connections and then visit the 'people' page above again. If it's still not working, try this link http://soundcloud.com/people/finder and if all else fails you can manually search for friends by visiting http://soundcloud.com/people/search

If none of that works for you, leave another reply and someone official can probably give you a better answer. Good luck!

Hi I'm trying to do the same - I've checked, and I'm connected on facebook but it no longer shows fb friends in the /people part...just suggestions of random users based on what I've listened to 😕

Hi Cyn.city,

I just logged into your account and could reproduce the error. Could you try disconnecting and then reconnecting your FB account? Let us know how it goes and we'll go from there.

I am having the same problem finding facebook friends. Do you need to have a Pro account?

Hi Katie,

No Pro account needed - Please make sure you've connected your Facebook account to your SoundCloud account. You can do so here: http://soundcloud.com/settings/connections

If it is already connected and you still cannot see the "Facebook Friends" section on https://soundcloud.com/people, please disconnect and reconnect to Facebook.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

DEAR HOW CAN I SYNC OR ADD ALL MY FACEBOOK FRIENDS HERE TO SOUNDCLOUD ?
I am experiencing the same problem above and tried connecting and disconnecting my facebook account two times already. What else can I do to fix this problem? Thanks

Hi, I have disconnect and reconnect my facebook account a couple times but still no luck :(
One thing thou when I click on the facebook link with my name (to my facebook page) is appears that it's not connected.
This is the message I got:
Profile Unavailable
Sorry, this profile is not available at the moment. Please try again shortly.
One thing thou it was linked to a page I manage and it opens up (which I disconnected it already).

Please make me feel soundcloud is worth using.

Thanks
I'm experiencing the same problem. Sort of sad this is such and issue. Should be automatic... soundcloud is losing out on a huge user need.
This is just ridiculous. What is the point of connecting to FB if you can't see your friends' streams automatically? Am I supposed to know all their SC usernames? C'mon SC, you can do better than this. There is NO WAY to see your friends' streams. I've disconnected and reconnected repeatedly, nothing works.

I'm with you, I will cancel my account if it doesn't include this feature it's useless to me.

Gina is that your only suggestion? Because it doesn't work.
Hey,

I was having the same issue for a little bit. But I figured out a trick I think, assuming you didn't create your account directly through Facebook.

1. Sign out of soundcloud
2. Sign in by clicking "Sign in with Facebook" and try seeing your friends in "Who to follow", that should work

(that basically creates a new account using your facebook info)

(Optional if you want to keep your previous account done through email)
3. Sign out
4. Sign in with your original email and password and it should work

Do you have the facebook account disconnected to start? I've signed in/out and connected/disconnected multiple times to no avail.

As with one commenter above, in the settings/connection center, when I click the link of my facebook profile I get the "Profile Unavailable" error message.

Any help would be much appreciated!
Same - I've tried everything and still no luck. One thing I noticed is that the email I used to register for my soundcloud acct is different than my facebook email address. I added that email as a secondary to my soundcloud acct but it still doesn't work (I also tried changing the email associated with my fbook acct to the primary soundcloud email). Such a bummer. Any thoughts or help would be much appreciated!
