Re: Facebook not updating recently listened to..

I'm having a similar problem with Spotify & Facebook: when I share playlists that I've recently changed, it still posts the original playlist ! I'm thinking there might be a couple of issues that still need ironing out when it comes to Spotify + Facebook.

I have tried everything. 
- Checking the options in my activity log (on "music" as well as on "spotify")
-Reinstalling spotify
-Turning on the "post on facebook" option on spotify.

The songs I am listening to, don't show on my timeline. They stopped showing on my profile once I hid one song on the recent activity box. I've event tried unhiding the hidden activity but no luck. 
The songs I listen to don't show up on my activity log so I can't even click on the "allow or show on facebook" option, and I pay 10euros a month so... I'm getting a little bit frustraded!!! PLEASE HELP

go to the spotify app and click on edit on the top left corner and then preferences and finally check on "show what i listen to on facebook" that happened to me once and that worked

Songs History Not showing up on Facebook

Hey there,
I have a spotify premium account and I'm always listening to the songs from my computer, and iPhone. The tracks I played always used to update on to facebook; however, recently only the songs I play on my iphone are being updated. None of the songs I've listened to on my computer are showing up on facebook. Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Open Spotify on your computer:

 

1. At the top click on edit

 

2. Click on preferences

 

3. Make sure you have checked the box that says "show what I listen to on Facebook"

 

You need to click on "file" and make sure "private session" is not checked.

 

Also make sure that on the Facebook website, you have allowed Spotify to use your account by going into the apps section of your privacy settings 

 

Hopefully this helps! Smiley Happy

Hmmm... try logging out of Spotify on your computer and log back in with Facebook.

 

Are you sure you are signed into the same account on both your computer and on your iPhone?

 

You probably know what you are doing, but sometimes people post here with no clue. Smiley Wink

Otherwise I don't know what would be causing this to happen.

 

Note: Only streamed songs will show up on Facebook. If you play a local file in Spotify, it will not show up on Facebook.

I can't get Spotify to post to Facebook at all.  I have tried to follow theadvice I have seen in the foreums but nothing seems to work.  One problem may be that the icon which people have showing in the Privacy settings/Spotify tab "Add app activity to my time line" does not appear and I don't know how to make it do so.

 

In Spotify I have ticked the box for showing what Iisten to in Facebook, but to no avail.

 

I don't know if it is related issue, but other people always show up as numbers in Spotify, not names  (the same for my account).

 

Is there a way to get this working?

You should be able to find it under the Preferences menu - Click on Edit > Preferences, and it's under the "Activity Sharing" tab.

I am having the same problem - but I think I know why.

 

I downloaded Sweden while on vacation in Sweden. Now that I am in Italy (where Spotify does not exist), I can listen to music, but it will not show up anywhere on Facebook. Could the change of country be relevant to how Facebook works?
