So, I have Spotify linked to my Facebook account and everything, and it used to post to my profile on the side (With the timeline profile) which songs/playlists I've been listening to. But I've noticed about a week or two ago, it stopped doing this. My friends and I regularly share music but it is hard to do so when the most recent song it shows is from 2 weeks ago.. :/
Help! How do I make it so it will post again?

Ok, as I appreciate this isn't a solution, it is a good workaround for those of you who want to countinue sharing top artists etc on your timelines.
1. create a last.fm account if you haven't already - www.last.fm/join
2. link your spotify account to your last.fm account - Edit > Preferences > Check 'scrobble to last.fm' box and enter last.fm username and password
3. install the app https://apps.facebook.com/lastfm-og-scrobbler/
4. open the app and enter your last.fm username and password (link in the top right corner of the page)
5. on your Timeline where you have the boxes that say 'Photos' 'Friends' etc click the little down arrow (under the activity log button) and swap your 'Spotify' or 'Music' box for your new 'last.fm scrobbler' box.
Any music you listen to from here on out on spotify will be displayed here. But even better! Download the last.fm app on your phone and laptop etc and last.fm supports scrobbling for many different media players, which means wherever you play music it will be displayed on your FB timeline, including music you listen to on your ipod or mp3 player.
Who needs Spotify? :P

i've noticed that spotify doesn't share what i listen to on Facebook. Like what i listen to recently, my playlists, my top favorites etc etc on my timeline. eventhough all the option boxes are checked, and i've also checked the options on my timeline.
Am i the only one having this problem ? (sorry for the bad english)

Thanks for replying soon.
I live in Belgium, it doesn't say that spotify isn't available here, so i really don't know... it worked just fine a week ago, but everything started disappearing.

got almost the same problem here..
if I compare my "music" page with the one from a friend, mine only shows "top playlists" while my friend shows top songs, top albums, # of songs listened...
I do use an IP coming from UK on my desktop at work, but the same problem occurs on my laptop at home which has a Belgian provider and IP..
any ideas? Would love to share the rest as well :)
if you want, I can add some screenshots ?

In that picture it looks like the publishing of top tracks/artists might be turned off. Are the following options ticked in your Preferences (the playlist publishing shouldn't matter).
20-02-2012 02:15 PM
yep they're all checked..
I've unchecked them and i'll try again with some new songs..
no, doesn't seem to be working :( still the same, only the playlists.. perhaps a problem with the link from spotify to FB?

Ok next check your activity log in Facebook. To get to this, click on the Activity Log on your timeline, then All (top-right), then Music. A drop-down menu with a cog should then appear as follows:
Are these all ticked for you too?
