When I sit down and listen to spotify I like to take time off from everything. However, it feels like spotify is just getting more and more connected to things! Now we have the facebook connect and recently it has started with a side tab that says "This is what your friends are listening to - updated in real time" . This tab got activated without my permission. I would like to have control over my account and would therefore request that you implement an option that turns of all sort of connection with social media networks. I know there's a similar function "private session" but this is automatically turned on and off when I have been inactive for a while. A simple button in preferences that turns all sort of connection not only the sharing of what I listen to but also what other people listen to would be great and ensure that I stick with spotify.
