Can pimples spread from one person to another?

I recently have noticed a lot of acne and pimples on my face. I read somewhere that acne is caused by a certain bacteria. So, I'm wondering, is it possible for acne to spread?

Thanks for your question. Acne is not contagious.
Yes, acne is very prone to spread to both contiguous and discontiguous areas of the skin.
