This happened to me and I just discovered a fix.

 

When you link your Facebook account on the desktop application, you don't grant Spotify any special permissions, and it can't access your friends.

 

When you login in via Facebook through the mobile app, then Facebook asks if Spotify can have access to your friends list.  Once you allow access on the mobile app, this feature will work on the Desktop app.

 

A silly bug, but at least there is a workaround.

So, as I don't use the mobile app, only desktop, any other workaround?

Thanks,

You need only log on through the Spotify mobile app once to grant it the permissions it needs from Facebook.  After that, the desktop app will work perfectly and you can uninstall the mobile app and never think about it again.
