Social Sharing of your Strava Activities

A new way to share your Strava activities!




Where can I share my photo?

Most social apps that you have installed on your phone will support this new sharing flow. For example, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter will fully support this experience. 


How do I use this feature?

  1. From your mobile device, select a GPS-based activity you’d like to share.
  2. Click the share icon on that activity in your feed or activity view (images of share icons below). 
  3. If you’ve attached photos to your activity, you will be prompted to select what you’d like to share (a map or photo). If you don’t have any photos uploaded to your activity, you will still be able to share the map image. We’ll add relevant stats to your shared image.
  4. Next, choose where you’d like to share this activity. You can share to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other apps that you use that have sharing functionality. You can also share the image in a text message or email.

Is this available on the website?

It's not possible to share activities in this style from the website at this time. 


Can I share a map instead of a photo?

Yes, you can select whether your post uses a photo or map as described in step 3 above. 


What units and language will my post use?

Your post will display in your units of choice (within Strava) and the language to which your phone is set. 


Can I share stationary activities or manually created activities?

Yes, however your post will not include a map or image with overlaid stats. Only activities with GPS information will result in this new experience. 


Can I customize what statistics I share?

At this time we only share your moving time, distance, and elevation for rides and distance, moving time, and pace for runs and swims. 


Will these activities get added to my Facebook Fitness section?

No, activities shared through the mobile app do not use Open Graph sharing and consequently won't be included in the Fitness section on your Facebook page. 


Where can I learn more about Facebook sharing?

You can learn about automatically sharing activities to Facebook, where activities will appear in the feed, among other topics in this article.
