Private activities when made public now appearing at top of feed?

I often like to keep routine and small activities private at first, precisely to avoid adding noise to my follower's feeds.

Later (usually several says later) I'll make them public, so I can have a public record of my overall totals without drawing anyone's attention to small efforts.

Since yesterday I have found that when I make these activities public they are appearing at the top of followers feeds (I have seen this on others phones) and drawing attention I don't want.

For me at least, this defeats a useful and flexible aspect of Strava's privacy features.

Has there been a change? Have I overlooked something?

Thanks :)

  • I dislike the new algorithm. Please bring back chronological. Also, I agree with the original post: I want the option to unlock a private post without it bouncing to the top of the feeds of those who follow me.  A "hide from feeds" would be ok. But I go back to original point: ditch the new algo!

  • You have managed to ruin the only feature I use on Strava, chronological feed. If it’s revenue you’re looking for, prepare for the opposite. If it’s not back by my renewal date I will not be renewing. That is money you won’t see. 

    This is not a matter of “people don’t like change. They’ll get used to it.” This is you ignored your base and they will bail. You’re not the only game in town. Most people I know have wahoos or Garmins Connect here I come!

  • Agree with the majority, I prefer to see activities listed in chrono order. If we had options to customize the order that's fine, but please make the default order chrono. Thank you.

  • I’m with Alain H, “I often like to keep routine and small activities private at first, precisely to avoid adding noise to my follower's feeds.”

    Please default to chronological order.

  • I hate the new feed as well. I generally only want to see who rode this morning, or maybe this weekend. If i want to goto last weekend, i can scroll back in time - simple and easy.

    I also use the private feature as mentioned above, as I don't want to Clutter my followers feeds with my 20 min easy spin

    Please please give us back the chronological order.

  • Hey Strava - Why no response? Neither in the product itself, or in this message thread, you don’t seem to react or respond! Have you ever explained why you discarded chronological feeds? I ride with a lot of Strava users and know nobody who likes your “new” feed sequencing. Is there a business reason? It’s bad for all the reasons listed in this thread. And you should give us option to delete the Peloton and Zwift rides which clutter up the feed with lots of little mini rides and tacky photos. And, as always, it’s be nice if your search function weren’t stuck in 1997. Please respond to paying customers asking these questions.

  • Thanks for your quick reply Elle. 

    It's good to know Strava takes feed management seriously.

    This came to my attention when a short virtual recovery ride (previously marked private) ended up appearing over a 100+ mile mountain ride on the weekend. 

    As far as I can tell, to avoid this happening now I have to ensure these little activities are marked public soon after they're uploaded. This actually makes me feel anti-social - maybe a rare but evidently not unique feeling.

    Perhaps the commute flag could also function as a 'deprioritize' flag in the feed algorithm.

    Thanks again.

  • Is Trump making these bad design decisions there in SF? Bring back the chronological!

  • I want to add support for this feature. I will often track short utility rides for the data but I don't feel like blasting my followers with tons of uninteresting rides. Right now I mark them as private but I hate that I don't see these rides on my personal heatmap. That's actually the reason I pay for Strava so its kinda a bummer that I could actually make a more complete one with a third party tool for free.
