Facebookt text encoding issue

chrisrazor

Firstly, thank you very much for adding custom playlist descriptions and art! Sharing my Spotify playlists is one of my favourite things and this is a great way to personalize them further.

 

However, I noticed a small issue when I posted my playlist on Facebook. Apostrophes show up as:

It looks like Spotify is passing HTML encoded characters to Facebook instead of UTF-8. Not a huge issue, but probably not that hard to fix either 🙂

Hey @chrisrazor

 

It's not cool that this happens. Just to confirm, is it showing normal on the app? Let us know if the same occurs when posting to Twitter or a different place.

 

If possible, send us the URI of the playlist to take a closer look.

 

Take care 🙂

Hi!

 

I am having the same problem today. It's the same when I try other web locations/services. I've tried to copy/paste standard text + ASCII without any luck.

Are there any fixes (or workarounds) for this?

 

Thanks a bunch!
