i honestly am disappointed that spotify has disabled your rightful acess to who is following your playlist. it is your account and i do not get why there has not been a change in this yet. i do get this is a way of privacy for the follows but as it is your account we have every right to see who is following. step up your game spotify.
but i did this playlist of the songs my girl crush recommends me and i forgot to make it private and it's like named after her whatever... there's one person following it and i don't know who is this, maybe her
I've spent a while reading the replies and thought a bit about packaging mine. Spotify is about music, and social interaction with others should be only through music, communicate through playlists, your cover, your last tune listened to. Whatever, but do it with music.
Spotify should make an option for hiding yourself from being listed as a playlist follower; the playlist owner views their followers, and those with this turned on are simply shown as "Anonymous". It stays on on all devices/sessions, until you turn it off - unlike the Private Session mode. Or just make it possible to choose "Follow Privately" on every individual playlist.
I understand there are privacy issues, but if you've got your playlists as public, then you're allowing people other than friends to follow/see them. I'm fine with people liking my playlists and listening to, and following them.
I definetely agree but if privacy is the issue then spotify is doing a pretty bad job at it. I've created playlists and I see my followers on my news feed listening to the tracks from the playlists ive created so that breaks my followers privacy. I've also seen them listening to some others. so im not sure, maybe privacy is not really the issue because they have a "make public/private" for the person that creates the playlist as well. Im not sure why they've removed it and messenger, I felt like that was a nice little feature to have to communicate with other music lovers out there. It'll be sweet to get that back one day
