Hello and thank you for your response to my question! Yes I have pretty much always seen the activity of those I follow in the right side bar but as of a couple of weeks ago I don't see this anynore!!! The friend I mainly follow does NOT have a FB account so I can't connect thru FB! I am NOT very happy about this as it's the second time withuna year that it has happened and there were quite a few "hoops" I had to jump thru in order to correct it!! Also. when I went thru the Community Q&A I saw several other with the same issue from as recently as 1 yr ago so....maybe Spotify STILL hasn't corrected what ever is THEIR problem!!!!
