Starred playlist doesn't publish listens to Facebook

Seemingly since I reinstalled Spotify on my PC, or when I updated my iDevices to the new version of the iOS app, any music I listen to that's playing from my Starred playlist no longer appears on my Facebook. Yet whenever I play songs from any other playlist, it will appear no worries.

 

I cannot find any options to specifically specify what Spotify activity to share to Facebook, so I'm assuming those sorts of options don't exist. I seem to have also discovered that if I "unpublish" my Starred playlist, then it will sometimes show what I'm listening to on Facebook from that playlist. The Starred playlist is also my only published playlist.

 

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the apps on my devices, and I've removed and readded my Facebook account as well, and removed Spotify from my Facebook account on FB's side.

 

Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this?

Hmm, ok. Using it today and I noticed that songs from the Starred playlist are publishing to Facebook again! I didn't change anything, so who knows, probably a temporary glitch.

 

Ah well, thanks everyone for their responses!

Is it set to publish to Facebook in the Spotify preferences?

Does the Facebook app have permission to post on your behalf?

Everything is set to publish to Facebook as it should be. Take note that other playlists appear on my Facebook fine, so hypothetically, if I have a playlist called "Chilling" that i'm listening to, it will show up on Facebook that I'm listening to a song on it. It's just the Starred playlist that plays from it don't publish.

Swanny - Is it all of your tracks in your starred list that aren't showing in Facebook, or just a few? Are you able to 'share' these tracks to Facebook?

Whenever I have the Starred playlist NOT published, some songs from the playlist will appear on my Facebook, but not all of them. I haven't been able to get any to appear on Facebook when I publish the playlist though.

Do you have private session on?

Definitely not. I did use the private session a short time before the issue started happening, but I don't know if that's just a coincidence or not. It's definitely been turned off since.

 

Also, as I've said twice now, it works fine when I play from other playlists. It's just not working on the starred playlist...

I  have the opposite!! Facebook shares songs I didn't listen to. So now my friends think I'm only listening musical songs (what I do once a month), while I'm listen to meral 24/7. Very weird. How to fix this?
