integrated ? Just because their there, doesn't mean you have to use them.

To me, if its an option, then i choose not using Facebook.

Besides, i don' t have a Facebook account, signed up with Spotify credentials, and i hate to say.... I'm sorry i did.

I'm now ditching this for Pandora... Way better selection, in my view....

Even getting round Spotify's pesky country thing is easy, but even listening to U.S content from Spotiy is not the issue. (hey....... If i want stuff i get it . Try and stop me)

It's just even though Spotify states millions of songs per day, which ones are they referring to here ? .... Coz its definitely not MY genre.

Pandora just has a more variety of selection.

And even if you did use Facebook for a Spotify account, you DON'T have to post what you are listening to. There are options....

You don't have to login using facebook.


Spotify is LEAPS AND BOUNDS better than pandora. I have about 10 playlist on spotify right now and it cost me absolutely nothing to make them. I can search entire albums, artists, or single songs for nothing. The spotify library is MASSIVE!

But I pay for spotify unlimited because in my opinion it's definitely worth paying for. The only edge I think pandora has over spotify is that it create better radio stations from suggested artists. When i start an artist radio on spotify it seems to play the same few artists and songs over and over again.

But

In general to everyone -
If Spotify playing tune doesn't show history of the artist - and similar artists to sample -
then it still has a long way to go, as all others tried, also have nothing close to compare to Pandora.
Free - a couple ad's now and then - not a problem - pay to eliminate it.

Some of them don't even let you pick an artist - what the heck is that all about?
Half of my playlists exist because of in depth work they put into it.

I wouldn't even know those Artists even existed that play what I like.

Soon as you need to 'like' something - so it's posted on FB - what's in it for You? Nothing.
It's a false rating system no one invested in.

All the time - posts come up - hey, vote for this - to create a false rating to win something for the contestant.
