Why cant I search for all my Facebook friends?

[ Edited ]

Since the recent update for Mac OSX (0.8.8.348.ge) its not possible to search for all my Facebook friends. Spotify only shows me the same 50? friends as suggestions, but where are the other 300 friends which use Spotify? I even cant find my girlfriend or my brother, who are using Facebook and Spotify. I followed them until yesterday and the recent update. Today even the search cant find their names. How do I get them into my activity feed?

 

Is it a bug or a feature?

 

Thanks! And greets from Germany.

Well ... I deleted the 70 suggested FB-Friends and was hoping, that Spotify would suggest me 70 others. But, now it says that "no other/more Facebook friends can be displayed" (Translation grom german).

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

Have you tried logging out and back into Spotify again? 

What we really need is to be able to view all of our friends like in the old version, have a read at my ideas topic here!

Thank you, Peter.

 

Yes, I have tried that. I even canceleld the permissions for Facebook and installed it again. With no change. I still am not able to follow particular Facebook friends. 

 

I now follow ten friends, which were suggested and found, deleted the others I did not needed from the Spotify App. Now there is no chance to find any of my 320 missing friends. 

 

But I read your topic and totally agree!

Are you still having the same issue as before? If so I can escalate this to the community staff to look into for you.

Sorry for not getting around to looking at this sooner - are your friends still not showing up?
