After the outrage in the last few days over Spotify and Facebook getting all chummy and sharing your music listening habits with the world, Spotify have today confirmed in a tweet(!) that they are making a small change to their software.

You can now temporarily turn on Private Listening in the client to mute any updates to Facebook.

This only last for the duration of the Spotify session; next time you start the app it will default back to broadcasting your listening habits in FB.  Apparently there will be a preference option to turn off integration completely.

Spotify still require a Facebook account if you wish to sign up.  Is this enough to placate the enraged users who are not interested in linking the two products?
