I have noticed an increase in posts recently relating to people who wish to deactivate their Facebook accounts, but if they do so they will also loose access to their Spotify account, since it was created using their Facebook details.
There should be an easy way to change your Spotify account, from a Spotify account which is tied to Facebook, to a Spotify (email only) account without the need to go through the quite long process outlined in my tutorial here.
This relates quite closely to being able to change your username idea, but I think this is different issue!
Currently when you share a playlist to Facebook/Twitter, it shows in your activity feed (and that of your followers) like below:
The numbers shown, in this case "5" and "11" correspond to the number of followers the playlist has, although that is made in no way clear when you view the Activity feed. Since it is not possible to view all of the playlist followers anyway (clicking the number does nothing) I think it would make much more sense to display the date/time that the playlist was last updated.
I don't require all my Facebook contacts to share the same musical taste. Currently have one 24/7 sounddrop user friend with deplorable musical taste who is flooding the Spotify social list to the point I can't see what anyone else is listening to. It would be so nice to be able to ignore him.
Please allow us to create a spotify username and password and link it with out facebook login information so that we can login with either option. I prefer to use my facebook credentials, but facebook is blocked on my works WiFi so while I am there, it would be easier if I could use the spotify credentials until I am home again then go back to using facebook. Thanks!
