Spotify + Facebook = Suck

Yes, the headline is extreme, but I mean it. I've been using Spotify since it was first available in the US, and I love the service. However, they crossed a line, and I don't think there is any way they will ever regain my trust.

In preparation for deactivating my Facebook account quite some time ago, I did what I could to detach it's tendrils from my on-line life. I thought I had covered all of my bases, but it seems I was wrong. Using the Spotify client had never reactivated my Facebook account, but the moment I signed in to the Android app, it came back to life like some overly-clingy zombie girlfriend. So, this time I think I'm actually going to delete my Facebook account permanently, as I don't think I can trust a company that will let a third-party app reactivate my account without at least requiring it to warn me first.

Good by and good riddance to Facebook!

This would have done more to get my attention than just a tone and scripted warning.
