  • How to determine when to unfollow someone in Strava

    Well I have to admit to being a bit hasty in Following someone on Strava.
    It was a twenty minute impromptu encounter as we both were going about our individual rides with plenty of chit chat to bide the time. Couple of days later he gave me a kudos and a congratulatory message. I replied and then Followed him.
    The problem is he didn’t Follow me and now it’s distorting my Following:Followed ratio. Additionally I have to say his activities are pretty insignificant and neither inspire or entertain me. So is this good enough reason to Unfollow him? I don’t want to offend him.

    I’m sorry. I’ll try to get out for a more gnarly ride this weekend. 🙂

    Erm.. I don’t really know what to add here.

    I unfollowed Brandon Fairclough because on the odd occasion we’d rode the same section he was unsurprisingly much quicker than me and snaps me out of my dream that when I grow go I’ll become a WC racer. I’m 40 next month.

    How would even know if you unfollow him?

    Surely you don’t compare your followers to how many you follow?

    Ignoring trollage – surely as they haven’t reciprocated by following they don’t give a shit about you so unfollow the barsteward – but just so they know give 1 last kudos and message letting them know.
    That’ll hurt them! Or not.

    it’s distorting my Following:Followed ratio.

    I’m just interested how bad my 0:1 ratio makes me look. 🙂

    That’s OK. It’s when it’s something like 9:0 when it starts to look bad and you need to reassess your approach.

    I don’t even know what this means. I know it isn’t a “problem” though.

    Unfollow him, I’m sure he will appreciate it. Especially if he ever finds this thread.

    Arrange to meet for a ride, then don’t turn up. Give an odd excuse.

    Repeat, with excuses getting more and more odd.

    That’ll teach him.

    I needed to post that to equalise my post to post ratio between the bike and chat forums.

    Where can I find this, or is that just a Premium feature?

    If only Strava users “followed” others they have a genuine interest in what they get up to. 😉

    Wow, what a thread. 🙄

    Anyway, more importantly Strava related….I did a ride yesterday (1st one in 5 weeks) & Strava said I’d done 17.9 miles. I thought I’d stopped it at the end & saved it but it ‘auto paused’ it, which I didn’t realise till I got home. So now It’s saved the ride as 32 miles & a much higher average speed.
    can I delete the bit when I drove home? 8)

    This is where the net sucks for getting across subtle sarcasm.lol

    If the op is actually serious I really do live in a different, parallel world these days.** 😀

    As I suspect I do every time I look at the news…

    No idea but my top speed was about 60mph!

    That’s because since you started following him he keeps his best rides private 😉

    I drop anybody whose KoM:Out of the top 10 ratio is too low – unless they’re over 1,000km per month.

    Multiply wind speed by angle of wind direction, if result greater than number of miles ridden in past [day][week][month][year]* by undesirable-followee then unfollow.

    *delete as appropriate

    I used to keep a tally of how many kudos I gave out to each person, and how much they gave me, in an aim to make sure I wasn’t being exploited for kudos, but the spreadsheet was getting a bit unmanageable as I made more Strava friends. Thankfully Strava have made a tool to handle all that for me:
