At the moment you can only sync friends to Friends Activity connecting to Facebook. I can´t fathom why the option to do the same through Instagram is not available. Both apps are from the same company, so the same agreement they already have should work for both apps.
I think Spotify is not taking the full advantage of the social features of his platform, and seeing this first step implemented would be a nice way to start improving.
Your Idea has been submitted a while ago, and unfortunately hasn't gathered enough votes (50 votes within 3 months) to keep it active in the Exchange. Be sure to know that this does not mean that your Idea has been declined by Spotify.
Don't worry, your Idea will still be able to gain more votes, and may get a Live Idea status if it receives enough of them.
