Facebook and Spotify query.

Postby Space Cowboy » Sun Jan 19, 2014 1:54 pm

A FB friend has just signed up to Spotify, now notices are appearing in my FB Timeline of what he is listening to but no mention of him sharing them ??
This a first, none of my other FB friend's Spotify stuff ever appears in my Timeline.
I have just listened to a album on Spotify that didn't come up on my friends Timeline.
Any ideas guys what's going on.
I've just seen a email from Spotify that my friend is 'Following' me (God knows why :lol: ) - does this have anything to do with my query.

I have noticed that if you listen to something on Spotify, it shows up on Facebook. Likewise, if you star a track on Spotify, that shows up on FB too. I'm sure there must be a way of opting out of this, but I couldn't be ****

When you say "you" do you mean me or generally ?
I've never seen my Spotify stuff (Starred or not) anywhere on FB unless I have shared it in which case it always says "Shared By".
In my friends case it just says he listened to "................." on Spotify.
It's not a problem, Im just curios why.

i think there is a setting in spotify, his spotify that is something along the lines of share your listening on facebook, so it seems that he is happy that his facebook friends know what he is listening to.
Ask forgiveness, not permission.
