Some time ago Facebook and Spotify unleashed an app that spews Spotify spam all over your Facebook wall or Facebook timeline. Any time any of your Facebook friends listens to music on Spotify, if they are using the Spotify app, it posts to your wall telling you what they are listening to. “So-and-so listened to such-and-such on Spotify.” Who the flip cares? If we wanted to know what our friends on Facebook were listening to, we’d go to their house and listen with them! Here is how to remove the Spotify notifications from your Facebook page.

First, here is an example of one of the Spotify posts:

Now, how to get rid of them. If you hover over the right corner of the Spotify post, you will see the downward arrow that signifies that there is a drop-down menu available to you related to that particular post:
