Won't Post to Facebook?

So, I have Spotify linked to my Facebook account and everything, and it used to post to my profile on the side (With the timeline profile) which songs/playlists I've been listening to. But I've noticed about a week or two ago, it stopped doing this. My friends and I regularly share music but it is hard to do so when the most recent song it shows is from 2 weeks ago.. :/

 

Help! How do I make it so it will post again?

 

Thanks <3

Facebook : sharing problem

Hi

i've noticed that spotify doesn't share what i listen to on Facebook. Like what i listen to recently, my playlists, my top favorites etc etc on my timeline. eventhough all the option boxes are checked, and i've also checked the options on my timeline.

 

Am i the only one having this problem ? (sorry for the bad english)

Hey!
Where are you connecting from? If you're in a non-Spotify country at the moment, or your connection goes through such a country, then there might be some problems with posting your listening to Facebook.

Thanks for replying soon. 

I live in Belgium, it doesn't say that spotify isn't available here, so i really don't know... it worked just fine a week ago, but everything started disappearing.

Re: Facebook : sharing problem

It should work well in Belgium. Has anything at all changed recently that might explain this?
A different connection? Upgrading Spotify? A new computer? There are a few things that could explain this.

got almost the same problem here..

 

if I compare my "music" page with the one from a friend, mine only shows "top playlists" while my friend shows top songs, top albums, # of songs listened...

I do use an IP coming from UK on my desktop at work, but the same problem occurs on my laptop at home which has a Belgian provider and IP..

 

any ideas? Would love to share the rest as well :)

 

if you want, I can add some screenshots ?

Re: Facebook : sharing problem

In that picture it looks like the publishing of top tracks/artists might be turned off. Are the following options ticked in your Preferences (the playlist publishing shouldn't matter).

Re: Facebook : sharing problem

Ok next check your activity log in Facebook. To get to this, click on the Activity Log on your timeline, then All (top-right), then Music. A drop-down menu with a cog should then appear as follows:

 

 

Are these all ticked for you too?
