My Question or Issue
For several months (pretty much years at this point), my Spotify friends feed has not been updating, it only shows 1 friend I have, while it should have a dozen others. This has been going on for far too long for it to be a problem on my end as I have changed my devices, settings, and other things to try and fix it. I have reinstalled Spotify and my OS but nothing helps. I also see no friends through my Facebook integration even after disconnecting and reconnecting my Facebook profile multiple times. All my settings are the same as my friends and he can see his friend activity but I can't. I already posted about this problem once, and was told it would fix itself but that was months ago. This is very infuriating as it has been going for so long.

Hey hey @Tonasj!
Thanks for reaching out on the Community!
The Friend Activity that shows for different users depends not only on one's personal settings, but also on the people that you follow.
In your screenshot we can see that you have the option ''Share my listening activity on Spotify'' on, which means that people that follow you should be able to see your activity. If you don't see people in your feed, it's possible that your friends have that option off and they need to turn it on.
Could you check with some of the people you follow if they have that toggle on? They can also try try refreshing the setting by togging it off and on again.
Hope this helps. Keep us in the loop here.
See my earlier post folks:
Once we have this we can do some checking. Thanks all.
Thanks for reaching out on the Community! We've moved your posts to a relevant Help Board where they fit better.
We can confirm that the default setting for sharing your listening activity with friends was changed to off with recent releases. This means that those who had it on before without explicitly setting it on, now have it switched off. This would explain why they aren't in your feed any more.
You can let your friends know of this change and ask them to turn it on in their settings if they want to share their listening activity.
Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions or need anything else, the Community is here for you.
