How the Strava Feed Works

Activity Ordering

Every Strava athlete gets a personalized feed. We order the items in your feed to ensure that you don't miss the items that matter most to you. When you refresh your feed, any content you haven't seen before will be added to the top of the feed, presented in an order based on the items that should be most interesting to you. Anything you've already seen will remain in the order in which you saw it. We don't hide any activities from you - they're all in your feed.

Your experience may be different if you check your feed every day or once a week. For example, if you are someone who checks their Strava feed multiple times a day, your feed will be closer to chronological as we only reorder the items that are new since the last time you viewed your feed. If you are someone that only checks the feed once every few days, you'll have more stories to catch up on so your feed will be ordered accordingly.

We've been collecting feedback from the athletes about the non-chronological feed through surveys and interviews. Learn more about our research and how we used our findings to inform our decisions when building the feed here and here. Feel free to Send us your feedback

  • Can I revert back to the chronological feed? There is no way to revert to a chronological feed.
  • Will this change affect my club or personal feed? No, your personal feed and your clubs' feeds will still be chronological

Stats in the Mobile Feed

The activity data you see in your mobile feed may be slightly different from activity to activity. Currently, there's no way to customize which stats are displayed in the feed. For example:

  • For a running activity, the elevation will appear in place of pace/speed if the elevation gain is greater than 100ft per mile. Otherwise, pace/speed will be visible on the dashboard.
  • The information you see may also be dependent on the length of the text. If you are not seeing elevation or pace but an empty space this may be because the time and distance take up more room on the screen and therefore the next set of data (elevation or pace) is not displayed since there is limited room.
