So Strava now wants to be FaceF*ck...

Personally I hate the new look feed, but then I don't use FB.

I'd be interested in what others thought... or if anyone even cares?

    So long as it tracks my activities I'm happy. Not noticed much change.
  • 5 pages
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
  • I hate the new Activity feed. Great big posts which mean you have to scroll down forever and the worst point now they are not in chronological order wtf? So, I will continue to use it as somewhere to record my rides but not sure I can be bothered to see what others are doing now or give kudos.
  • I like the new layout, but really hate that it's not in chronological order. At least give the option!

    Have yet to see anyone post a blog or status update or anything besides an activity.
  • Sorry for appearing a bit dumb but what exactly is not in chronological order?

    Is that a Premium thing? i can't find it. They changed to font.

    A lot of Strava is what it is because it tailors to the kind of people who post commentary on everything they do on social media, or "twats" as they are commonly known.

    If you're constantly checking your Strava feed the people you follow rides will appear in chronological order as usual, however, if you don't check for a while, any rides you 'miss' from riders you follow, will appear above rides done more recently... if that makes any sense at all.

    If you don't follow anybody just ignore all of the above...
  • No they don`t.
    I follow Dowset and it shows a ride from days ago, posted between two rides from the past two days.

    The worst is yet to come , when the FB freaks realise they can post even more inane shite on Strava as well.

    not seen a single "POST" yet so there is hope ...... but the change to a non-chrono order is fecking irritating Its already starting to make me use it less as I finished my halfhearted workout this morning in a slump of I quit, I am spent, I should have stayed in bed .... wetn to check what my mates had done. Ist ride was Andre Griepel from 3 days ago, then a few activities from yesterday .. ooooh, 1 from this morning .. more from yesterday afternoon ... then I gave up

    Yep.
  • If it aint broke, don't fix it.

    Its not just the chronological order that they've censored about with. Also some of the information boxes have also been moved around, for example your accumulative distance and time for the week is now on the other side of the screen. And if you open up an activity, the layout for the your segments and results looks completely different. Anyone know how to hide / unhide segments now? As I'm only interested in comparing my own time along certain segs.

    I had no problem with the old layout, I could always find the data that Im looking for. So why make a change that I haven't asked for?

    Quite like it.

    If you don't like someone/a club you follow's posts then just unfollow them, that's how social media works.

    Read a few interesting things on there from athletes I follow in last few weeks, and had one brand put up a bit too much so I just unfollowed.

    No issues with the lack of chronology.

    Thanks Joe, mine are still in order at present so if I leave it a few days I will probably see the difference.

    I hate it it. All over the place and illogical. Each activity takes up too much screen space and results in excessive scrolling.

    Some may like it but I bet many will hate it and the worst thing is that Strava won't give the option to those who don't like it to revert to the old format.

    Exactly this, I just can't be bothered to scroll and look for mates activities anymore and give kudos

    I doubt it. It's probably just because people haven't discovered you can post yet. It can only get worse

    I haven't written a post yet, or seen anyone else's.

    One improvement of the new look for me is the training log for the week shows climbing as well as distance. I'm trying to get to 12000m this month, so it's good to see where I am after each ride each week.

    I dislike change, not sure I'll pull through

    Exactly ! Strava wasn`t that, which was an attraction. If it turn into that, I`ll be dumping it.

    You could always see your climbing for the week on your profile page.

    I hate that new font too...

    Anyone else getting the map flickering when you move the cursor over it. It alternates between 50% and 100% of the feed size

    Edit: Like this. Note how the map overlaps the ride below it on the second screenshot

    The whole update feels a bit buggy to me, seems slower than before too.

    I've been using it daily since 2012, I might stop using it now.
  • I put something in the support area about it. I'd really hope it's a bug in the code. Otherwise it defeats the entire purpose of having a social media "feed".

    I can't believe nobody's gave it any kudos.
    To be honest sometimes I scrolled down and gave kudos away out of habit / just to be polite, without even looking at their activity. I suppose it's a well done for at least doing something?
