    Default Strava Feed Order

    If you do not like Strava's decision to show you other's activities in a seemingly random order, rather than chronologically, you can let them know here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NewStravaFeed

    I thought "Starve Feed Order" was a random group of words assembled by an AI to get us to click on it. It worked.

    Thanks for the link, I just left feedback. I'd like to have at least the option to keep a chronological feed, composed of actual athletic activities. The new layout isn't bad, but the non-chronological feed with no way to opt-out is a bummer.

    I thought it was some weirdo cyclist variant of "F*&k Marry Kill."

    Obviously auto-correct changed the title from Strava to Starve.

    Thanks for posting this. It's impossible to make everyone happy. But, I do wish more companies would allow deeper customization of feeds. I generally prefer a chronological feed, but at the same time there are "athletes" (e.g., my dad) I don't want to miss. I feel sorry for the algorithm designer who has to accommodate my "chronological except dad."

    Being able to filter out certain activities (e.g., trainer rides, yoga) from the feed would be especially nice.

    I would like the "Starve Order." Rides in the order of best food and beer destinations.

    I like the new feed order since I often missed activities that were uploaded after they occurred. Evil Steve gets the sads when I don't give him kudos for stuff he uploads two days later.

    Thank you, kind sir, for posting this link. I gave them a piece of my mind!

    I want my social media feeds to be chronological for many reasons, but with Strava its particularly personal. I have a broad and varied friend-base on the platform, comprising of all rider levels (as WABA intended).
    However, with this system privileging either the most amazing rides, or the mundane commutes of seemingly random acquaintances, the rides of friends/family just getting started simply don't show up in my feed. These folks are the ones who need Kudos most, and they are getting feed-blocked by the system.

    Case-in-point: It really bums me out when Mr. Kitty asks me excitedly if I saw his ride, and I have to say "No," then see the disappointment and discouragement that causes. I have to say that because his rides NEVER appear in my feed anymore unless I search for him by name. The algorithm doesn't understand that his 1.7 mi effort is more important to me than the daily 19 mi grind of a friend.

    Besides, I feel silly commenting/kudoing a ride days after it passed. >.>
