ShareMyPlaylists.com was created specifically for Spotify users to rely on one service to share playlists with family, friends and more. ShareMyPlaylists.com offers users a chance to register a new account then link their Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm accounts to it.
From there, you can easily share playlists you created on Spotify or on the site itself with your friends and followers on both sites. You can even share the link to people not using those particular sites so they can see what you are listening to. We have previously written about how to create playlists in Spotify.
