Failed to enable Spotify social

[ Edited ]

Hi

 

It has been 2 weeks now, and I keep getting the error that Spotify has failed to enable spotify social. It really annoys me:manfrustrated:

 

Any suggestions?

Hello,

Do you have any firewalls or antivirus software on your computer at all? If so, you might want to try adding Spotify to the "exceptions" list - that might get things working.

The same thing happened to me immediately after I diconnected Spotify from Facebook by removing Spotify from the list of authorized applications in my Facebook account.  I have found that I do not like the interaction and information sharing  between these services so I try to disable them.

I've been getting this error message as well, over the past couple of days (immediately after the spotify client said it was updating to the latest version). I have verified that the client is allowed through my firewall.

I fixed the issue by logging out of my account and then resigning in using my facebook credentials instead of my spotify info.

But what if you do not want to connect to Facebook?

It seems like Spotify is not supposed to work properly without a connected Facebook account.  I had to reactivate the Facebook connection too in order to get rid of the error message.  Annoying!

I tried to enable and disable the Facebook <-> Spotify connection again.

It seems that if you disconnects from the Spotify end it works OK, no error messages occur.  If you remove Spotify from the list of authorized applications in Facebook then Spotify will not stop complaining about it while the option of disconnecting from the Spotify end is disabled.

I tried all the above, but still have the same error ("loading..." notification in the friends section).

Any other suggestions?

Thanx!
