Friends missing from friends feed


Certain friends that I follow have disappeared from my friends feed. Last time I checked the feed was showing those friends' activity. My friends played music after that as well but their activity from my feed has completely disappeared. Please help.


Hey folks,


Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.


We’re happy to say that this should now be fixed for everyone!


If you’re still experiencing this issue, can you make a new thread in the relevant board? We'll get back to you there.

Hey @parth711.


There are multiple reasons that might explain this.

Your friends might have deactivated the option to share their listening activity with anyone. Or they are listening to music in a Private Session.

Also, not every user you're following is shown in your Friend Activity feed. I'm not sure what the maximum is but I have 50 users in my feed right now.

You can also go into your Settings and deactivate and activate the "Show Friend Activity" feed again. Sometimes it just stops working which easily gets fixed by doing that.


Let me know if any of that helps. :)



Same issue since yesterday. Nothing fixes it


Same issue also since this morning. All past information to fix has not worked.


Same issue. Nothing fixes it. Facebook friends disappeared yesterday; today other users disappeared.


 I'm having the same issue since yesterday.  I've tried:
1. Logging out and back in

2. Logging out, restarting, logging back in

3. Turn friends feed off and back on (also with logging out and back in)

4. Unfollowing and re-following (also with logging out and back in)

5. Uninstall and reinstall a clean version


Windows 7, version



I am having the same issue - only friends who are not connected to facebook are showing activity. I have been having this issue since Wednesday (YESTERDAY).

I have tried all of the same fixes and nothing works. I know for a fact my other friends are listening to music. Spotify can you please look into this?!
