With the recent changes to the Facebook profile, it was a certainty that the way certain programs, websites and apps interacted with the social media giant would change as well. The online world is moving to a space where people share what they’re doing, where they’re doing it and who they’re with. Music super-app Spotify is following this creed and allows you to connect with your Facebook account so you can share what you’re listening to with your Facebook friends and see what they’re listening to.
