How to get rid of Spotify social?

[ Edited ]

Hi there. I just want Spotify for music, I dont want anything to do with Facebook. I also do not want to see what others in Spotify play (I have two friends on Spotify). There is also this annoying bar at the right side of my Spotify client, and I have no idea how to remove it. If anyone has a clue on how I can remove this bar, I'd be very happy.

It seems like it is just to go to the View-menu and check OFF the People List. I agree with you - this thing is REALLY annoying!!!!!

I hope it works!!! If not, I will probably stop my account here on Spotify... Seems like Spotify has been bought up by Facebook, or something - but I don't know yet.

I see that hides the people well, but I actually want them to be gone, not just hidden. how do I remove them completely, I haven't added any "friends" on Spotify, I logged in with my facebook account, one time by mistake and thats how they showed up.

 

I've since disconnected my fb account from spotify, but the people are still there.

Those details must still be stored in your Spotify cache. 

Try a clean reinstallation making sure you restart you computer after you uninstall and that should sort this out for you.
