I appreciate that Spotify cares about my privacy and doesn't divulge my listening behaviour without my consent.
But, it would be fun if we could.
Of course this information is private, and should be private by default. But I would love it if there was an option that allows me to show my monthly top artists and top tracks on my profile for everyone to see, or for just my friends to see.
The current option:
Is fairly limited. It only shows the absolute recent artists. It doesn't show the monthly top listening charts, which would be way more fun.
I get that for some people this can be sensitive information. Especially podcast content. That's why this option should probably come with a clear warning about what making this information public.
But other than that. It seems like a great way to share in music tastes, see what my friends like and start conversations about it. It would make Spotify a more social experience for those who chose to be more open about their music taste.
