Responding To Facebook Flap, Spotify Says They’re Just "Creating an amazing new world of music"

image from www.hypebot.com As we reported this morning, many Spotify users are upset by a new requirement that a Facebook account is needed to sign up for a new Spotify free account.  Late today Spotify answered the critics, but it's unlikely their explanation will satisfy disgruntled users.

"To us, this is all about creating an amazing new world of music discovery. To make this as good and simple as it possibly can be, we’ve integrated Spotify login with Facebook login. By adopting Facebook’s login, we’ve created a simple and seamless social experience," Spotify told evolver.fm.

The new Facebook rule only applies to new Spotify accounts, but that may not be enough for those who view Facebook as evasive. 

For a music industry anxious to increase new music discovery, the Facebook-Spotify link is only good news.
