How To Stop Spamming Your Facebook Friends From Spotify

The addition of Spotify to the music dashboard that Facebook launched last week created a side-effect addition of its own: Users who listen to a lot of music throughout the day are also unintentionally notification-bombing their friends.

Like our sibling blog Inside Facebook pointed out:

Users have begun to receive notifications when a friend sees a story about their listening activity and clicks a play button on of the songs. These notifications direct users to an activity section of the music dashboard, which encourages them to comment in order to start a conversation about a song them and a friend both listened to.

Now, picture that process repeating several times daily — at least.

Fortunately, for those Facebook users who are considerate of their friends’ newsfeeds, there is a solution within Spotify: In the Facebook panel, under settings, uncheck the box that says, “Get personal recommendations by sending music you play to Facebook’s Open Graph.”

Readers: Have you found yourselves dealing with any extra posts on your walls or news feeds since Facebook introduced several changes last week ?
