Spazieren VS Laufen

I get a lot of sentences that involve the word "to walk".

Well, lots of those tell me "spazieren" is wrong when I use them, and they say to use "laufen" instead.

Can someone clarify?

Spazieren gehen = to go for a walk, to stroll

Spazieren = to promenade

Laufen = to walk / to run (in Getmany), to run (in Austria)
