Hey @q-mv_gu5b5msa ,

 

Have you tried all the steps I mentioned above? You can also confirm if you enabled the connection between Spotify and Facebook correctly, I recommend you to check this.

 

Thanks! 🙂

Thank you!

Turns out my app entry in facebook had expired here.

To renew the ticket you can:

  • Click on 'View and edit' on the expired spotify entry
  • Press the 'Renew Access' button on the popup window

After this Spotify and Facebook integration worked again and I could follow new friends.

My earlier problem got solved as I renewed the Facebook-settings here:

https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications&ref=settings

 

Just today, I checked whether my Facebook-friends can be found from Spotify.

It gave that similar error message, so I had to yet again renew the apps settings in the Facebook-settings page. For some reason the Spotify's permission had ended at the end of september. I hadn't changed anything, so I wonder why it wouldn't just continue and use it normally.

So, I think this problem is only happening if the permission goes out of date and you have to renew it by clicking couple times there on Facebook.

Hey @user-removed,

 

Welcome to the Community.

 

I recommend you to confirm if the option "Facebook Processing Data" is enabled here.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

I have solved it by contacting Spotify via the chat, they have had to create a new account and transfer the subscription to my new account since my old one was setup also with Facebook login and I deleted that account ages ago

Jesus... where is this tab for facebook in my spotify??? I looked and don't see anything. Why is this app so clunky? Did you hire the same folks who designed linked in? The UX is terrible as is the support.

Hey @jbarrieuk,

 

Not sure on which device you are using Spotify but on Windows Desktop it's in the 5th section called "Social". Here's a screenshot of how it looks like.

 

Best,

Felix
