Are You Aware Of Your Spotify Activity?

27 Oct

I saw an article in USA Today by Ashley Wong recently that explained Spotify shares all of its users’ activity with followers and the public. Most other social networks like Twitter and Facebook allow you block your activity history from the public.Spotify accounts are setup to show your listening history.

So what can you do if you love Spotify? The music service has a private session button you can use. You can also setup secret playlists where only you can see them. Finally you could create an anonymous account.
