I am interested in changing my username and making the visibility of my linked full name not visible. Does anyone know how I can suggest this change to Spotify UX designers?
I am highly engaged in social media online, but never use my full name for privacy reasons. Sadly, when linking my Facebook, I didn't realize my entire name would thus be visible. Because of this, I no longer share any playlists via Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, Tumblr, or Instagram.
Spotify is a great platform and I've been using it since the get go. I would enjoy sharing my user experience and playlists to continue to grow the community of users, but because of this privacy issue I do not. Essentially instead of seeing this as a social music platform I use it as a tool and am done.
Anyone know how I can make my concerns known to upper management?
It's 2014, and we still have the same problem. When you register to Spotify via your FB, your username is a string of very unmemorable numbers--that you can't even change! It's so hard to log into the web player from elsewhere, or to ask friends outside my FB circle to search for me or my playlists on spotify, because my username couldn't be changed.
Calling for the numbered usernames to be temporary only, or at least for FB-registrants to have their facebook usernames/URLs as the adopted Spotify username.
@12159120980 - It's also the reason if you have a Facebook created account, that account is forever tied to Facebook, you can't move to a Spotify only account. It's something I have campaigned for them to change but the answer has always been no sadly since the issues you describe realistically only affect a tiny percentage of customers.
