Deleted playlist still showing up on Facebook.

Hi guys, my problem's a bit different than the ones I keep finding. I deleted a playlist a while back, and I want it to STAY DELETED. (It's from an old relationship.) But it's showing up on Facebook, and people can still click it and listen to it and everything. I can't change it to private because it's already deleted from my account, yet it's still there, with all the songs, and I don't want it to be. How can I completely delete this playlist from my account?

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

I have asked before it the staff can change the privacy settings of playlists and the answer has always been no. With that in mind, I would suggest you fill in the form on this post and request your playlist to be restored to your account. Once that is done, you can change it to private and then delete it again which will remove it from all of your profiles. 

 

Be aware that deleting a playlist from your account does not remove it from the Spotify systems, but will simply remove it from your account. It is not possible to completely remove playlists due to the way the playlist following system works so even if you delete a playlist and make it private, anyone with a direct link to the playlist, or if they already follow it will continue to see it.

What is the name of the playlist and your Spotify username (or a link to the playlist) @juba ?

That playlist doesn't show on your public profile for me so my guess it is private already. Anyone with the direct link to the playlist will be able listen and follow it (apart from the starred playlist).

Hi, I'm having the same issue as well. I deleted a playlist on my account, but for some reason people are still able to view and follow it. When I deleted the playlist, I had one follower for that playlist; now I have three.  Here's the link for the playlist:  Prom March 2014

Showing up on Facebook or on your Spotify profile inside the client?
