I likewise joined spotify before the Facebook integration. Since then I deleted my Facebook and now Spotify Social does not work. I even did what you suggested and changed my password. Old facebook friends still show up in a stream on the side but I cannot but when I try to send songs it says "Failed to Open Spotify Social".
There has to be someway to do it. And I will not reactivate my Facebook. I had friends on Spotify before Facebook was linked up and I can't get them anymore.
Hi Mr_X - You're currently receiving the 'Failed to Enable Spotify Social' message as well?
I can confirm your account isn't linked to your Facebook. Please try restarting your desktop.
When you open your Preferences Page do you see 'Connect to Facebook' now? If so, go ahead and select that button. Wait until Facebook login opens and press the Cancel button (if you don't want to link to your Facebook page).
I am getting the ever annoying "Failed to enable Spotify social" error as well - both on PC and Mac. I have a premium account and this is unacceptable. Please disconnect my Facebook account from my Spotify account. My Spotify account is 1216396523.
I was having the same problem-----but realized it was because I had changed my Facebook password. If you go into your Spotify's preferences and select the "Connect to Facebook" option, it will prompt for your credentials again. This should solve the problem. (if you use Facebook with Spotify)
