Strava activity feed
What’s everyones thoughts on the new activity feed in Strava?
Gone has the chronological order of activities. In comes some algorithm that bases activities on whether they are “interesting” or not. Makes the feed look like a jumbled mess.
Hopefully a Tory style U-turn to revert it back or at least an option to display chronologicallyPosted 9 months agod3carbonMember

Still no way to filter out people’s commutes or indoor training?
Damn do i get sick of seeing peoples Zwift activities especially through the winter.
However, I quite like the look of the new layout but it should always be in chronological order IMO.Posted 9 months agodeadkennySubscriber
Pathetic attempt to look all “Facebook” while once again not addressing a single thing the support forums have been demanding for ages.
Primarily for me…
* UK units of measurement (Celsius NOT Fahrenheit with feet, miles etc).
* Mountain biking as an activity and distinguishing segments from road and vice versa, MTB challenges distinguished from road.
* Proper privacy so even if on a leaderboard but enhanced privacy set, you can’t view that persons ride without being an approved follower.
* Sharing private rides amongst friends or groups without making public.
* Closed groups where rides are private to the group only, get their own leaderboard but group rides not on public leaderboards (particularly for sensitive trails, events on private land etc).
* Management and moderation of segments and sensitive trails by trail maintainers, land owners, etc. Like Trailforks.
* Fix broken sharing to Facebook etc from web.
* Ability for users to unmatch segments. Handles bad segment matches instead of getting ride flagged by someone and having to send request to support to unmatch segments or otherwise make ride private.
* Moving components between bikes to keep history of their mileage, unretiring components, etc.
All stuff been demanded for ages, and we get nothing but fluff, bugs, roadie challenges, and Zwift garbage.Posted 9 months ago
I too was subjected to the awful new feed today – a feature that no-one wanted, and harder to implement than some of the many small filtering options that have been requested.Posted 9 months ago
Stopped my premium about 18 months ago, and if anything they are going further away from getting me to restart than drawing me back.weeksySubscriber

Can’t see much difference here.
Wonder why they are so reluctant to allow Zwift blocking. Do they anticipate a backlash from the special snowflakes upset that they’re being marginalised?
TBH the non-Zwifters seem more precious than the Zwifters. It’s not our fault our training is indoors, it doesn’t suddenly make it less valid, or make it less important just because it’s not outdoors. Why can’t you non-Zwifters just accept, it’s what some people doPosted 9 months ago

Got nothing against Zwifters, I log plenty of turbo sessions myself – but I don’t actually expect anyone other than me to be interested in them.
Fundamentally, 25 laps of the volcano is just less interesting to most (i’m sure there are some exceptions) than seeing you went out and did your local loop in a gale on Tuesday night.
Commutes on the other hand, should probably be filtered by default – no-one wants to see athlete X doing the same 7.63mi twice a day every day…Posted 9 months ago
Not everyone does though. When does a commute transmutes into a ride?
When whoever uploads it thinks its of sufficient interest and different enough from normal to not check the commute box.Posted 9 months ago
If Mr 7.63mi decides to try a new route and ends up taking 12.4mi and getting lost I definitely want to see that. But not the next day when he returns to same old same old.
