You mean the right hand side section of Spotify? Or the ticker in the chat bar of Facebook?

Hi Dici--I've just moved your post over to this relevant thread.

Have you checked your Spotify Preferences page and your Facebook setting as George15 mentions above?

You can reach your FB settings by following these steps:
-Go to your profile
-Click on 'Activity Log next to 'Update Info'.
-Click 'All', then scroll down to 'Spotify'.
-Click the cog/gear & then select what you would like Spotify to share with Facebook.

Found out there is a flaw in facebook. Go to facebook -> your profile page -> activity log -> select on the right dropdown menu (standard "all"): spotify -> now hold your control button and use the scroll weel to zoom in. After three or 4 zoomlevels the cog gear appears, you can select "Recent spotify activity", "Top songs", "Top artists" and so on. Have to same problem, Can't see the "Add app activity to my timeline opt in my privacy settings. It's publishing I am listening to songs now, but not which one 😞 Facebook flaw!"

Hey guys, I've been having this problem too and I figured it out, and spinext's discovery is actually more than half of the game to fixing this problem! So thank spinext for getting as far as he/she could.

 

1. Read spinext's post.

2. After you have clicked the right drop down menu "ALL" and went down to select "SPOTIFY", do the zoom in 4 times with Ctrl+Wheel and the "cog" will appear on the right hand side, on top of the "ALL" dropdown. (This is a facebook flaw).

3. Uncheck all of the checks in the cog, then refresh the page. Then go back to the cog and recheck everything. (If you have to find it again or the page resets, then do step 2 again.

4. This is where the twist is: next, you do step two, but instead of of selecting "SPOTIFY" in the "ALL" dropdown, select "MUSIC" and do the same thing with step 2 and 3.

 

VOILA now everything is back on your timeline! 🙂 (And you can go back to the zoom and cog if you want to hide certain things)

See if you can zoom in just on the text with options on your browser? Just zoom in a few times until you see the cog on the right hand side.

not that i can notice, it just zooms the whole screen and since my mouse wheel only works one way, i have to work my way quite monotonously back to system pref. for the zoom out.

could you possibly post a screenshot of the cog and what you mean by "zoomed in" so I might be able to guage what exactly I'm looking for and how to tackle it,

 

Thanks

Dici, you're in the wrong place. Re-read the instructions for both my post and Spinext's post.

 

 

hazaman11, I've attached the image. Do image 1, then Image 2, then repeat.

If you need anymore help, let me know. Good luck.

Hi, I understand. I've done this, but it doesn't work. I don' t See any " posting in Timeline Option" in my spotify Setting, as you See in my posting before. Thx

I don't think you understand. If you look at the two pictures (mines and yours), they're two different pages you're talking about.

I understand the difference. I only want to say, that, after done this, i don't have the " Post to Timeline Option" in my spotify Stettins.

It doesn't say "Post to Timeline Option" in the settings, there's a drop box of check marks. Just follow my instructions.
