Recently Played Artists

I'm not understanding what "Recently Played Artists" does. Originally it had three bands in the list - one of them a band I actually do listen to frequently - so I follow them and they disappear from this list. The other two bands - not so much - so I hide them. Next time I look at Recently played artists, there they are. Not hidden/deleted. Also - I have been listening to full albums of lots of other artists that I *do really like* and these dont show up here. I haven't played these bands since I was using the free version - now I'm on Premium and these are my only two "recently played artists". 
I dont really understand the Spotify criteria for becoming a Recently Played Artist. And why Spotify wont stop recommending Airborne Toxic Event and  Hot Hot Heat - the same bands in Recently Played Artists which I assure everyone - I have *not* recently played.

@ringowcl - It should update itself automatically, but not instantly. Mine normally lags behind by about a week.

I'm having the same problem too, and spotify activities aren't being shown on my facebook account anymore.
Actually, I have disabled it, but when I enable it again it's not working anymore (both the facebook and spotify's sharing).

Do you have a Spotify account linked to Facebook, or was your account created via Facebook?

I have the same problem.  I listened to Fleetwood Mac and Toto in a private session once while doing DJ research (yes, once) and they won't go away as my recently played.  I've of course listened to SEVERAL other artists/bands for hours.  Everytime I check out older music, it sticks around and makes me look like a middle-aged **bleep** who doesn't listen to anything but music that's 30+ years old.  It's lame.  I just assume that Spotify is being paid to promote certain bands or musicians over others, and thus their visibility is heightened rather than honest reporting of who someone is regularly or recently listening to.  It's pretty abhorrent.
