I am fairly certain after getting pissed off with that sh1t myself that the only way to disable the **bleep**ty **bleep**ty **bleep**ty facebook sh1t is to cancel your account and make a new one that can't be linked to facebook in any way (make a new e-mail address).

 

it's getting stupidly bullsh1t now, every is following the trend and making it ridiculously easy to 'link' your account with twitter and facebook, to the point where it will soon become a default setting to share all your details with every social networking website in the goddamn world who obviously use all your information to hit you with subliminal advertising.

Following isn't related to Facebook at all.

 

When following artists was introduced, you would have be set up with a few artists that you are following already. These were based on what Spotify considers to be your favourite artists.

 

If you don't want to follow any artists at all, just go to your "Following" page in your profile, and unfollow each artist. No further artists will be added in the future - except those that you choose to follow yourself.

Why do it seems that I have choose to follow someone?

Why do I have obviously have followers that hot at all have choose to fallow me?

in fact... Why do get this that I haven't ask for?
Please give me a choise to turn it off/on

 

And Spotify
When you start something new in "the social area" etc (or in general)

please  don't be so "snobbish" and arrogant and just publish... no explanation....

 

I got a feeling that you think you are alone on the market

Please employee someone who can talk with the management of this ridiculous behavior

Just because FB has that attitude,,, don't be a follower

 

(and why do i have to use your spellccveker!!!...

SP rely seems to got the wrong  attitude in management siting in an tower......

You will only have automatic following the first time you log into the new client with the new follow system. After that it is up to you to add people you want to follow.

When I read this again I really feel big brother and 1984

When  following artists was introduced"../../  These were based on what Spotify considers to be your favourite artists."

 

So not I, Spotify, the dictator himself choose for me!!!

Great

Guess some smart in the office said hmm.... We can't start this with 0 followers because then it maybe does not seem look so big...

So instead lets kidnap peoples opinion and it looks that we have a lot of people who are interested in this bull**bleep**

If SF gest to be some kind of look alike FB I am out directly. I will not enjoy that kind of nonsense community
