Spotify Curtails Free Music For U.S. Facebook Users

What a bummer for those of us who’ve gotten hooked on Spotify in the U.S.: The company is limiting the free version of its music streaming service to a six-month period.

People who’ve had Spotify accounts since the service became available in the U.S. can only have the free version for just ten hours per month, and that’s with advertising and no more than five replays of any single song per month, according to The Verge.
