  • Hello, it's specially added to look for friends in your city or country.
    But the function could be added to disable the column "mutual friends"

  • Or at least remember those friend suggestions we’ve dismissed.

  • I've had the same person, who caused me a bunch of grief in the past, show up multiple times as a 'suggested friend'.  Really bothers me.

  • This feature Drives me Insane - Not sure why STRAVA cannot give us the option to disable it? It's not Rocket Science!!!! COME ON STRAVA & WAKE UP AND LISTEN TO YOUR CLIENT BASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I assume there must be Strava users that like the suggested friends feature but I am certainly not one of them. It is most annoying having a list of individuals on my dashboard that I don't know and have no desire to know.  I agree with Loren D. Give users the option to disable it.

  • I hope someone at Strava is listening to this and will do something about this very annoying problem. There needs to be a way to opt out of suggested friends. I do not know where this suggestion is coming from, but I'm getting a suggestion to follow someone who is nowhere close to being a friend. I know this person, however, we are not friends. I really hope they are not getting a suggestion to follow me, that would be bad.

  • Strava listen - now that's funny! I'm deeply suspcious as to where these recommendations come from especially as they seem to match some from apparently unrelated platforms. Might just be time to walk away before they hand it all to whoever has taken over from Cambridge Analytica

  • I've been a summit member since 2015, when it was simply called "premium".

    I've heard and read calls to remove the suggested follow feature since back then. 

    Why won't Strava pay attention? At least allow paying customers to opt out of this function. Or at the very minimum, don't show me people that I've already previously dismissed. I see the same people (that I've already expressed I do not want to follow) over and over and over.

  • Since they don't seem to listen, they probably have a really good reason, to don't care. Money is a good reason some times.

  • I have been a premium member for many years, and have 20 years plus experience in the software industry. I can honestly say that Strava astounds me.  Somehow, they have a market dominate position,  despite having a really crappy user-interface that has hardly changed at all in the last 5 years. There has been so little innovation. Just compare it to something like Zwift which constantly upgrades its user interface. Even Garmin Connect is more innovative, and thats really saying something.

    Someone needs to buy this company and sort it out.

    I started using Strava for loads of reasons.

    1. To track my training. (I now use Training Peaks as it does a better job)

    2. To track my performance (I now use Xert as it does a better job)

    3. To communicate with other athletes (I still use it for this, but TBH there are so many other ways of doing it)

    4. To compare myself to others (Strava segments is still the leader in this IMHO).

    5. To analyse my data (Veloviewer has come from nowhere to lead on this, albeit with Strava data, but Garmin Connect stats is still better than Strava).

     

    Just seems like a massive missed opportunity by Strava execs.

  • Like many of the posts above, I find the Suggested Friends feature very annoying. Strava, please provide an option to turn this feature off. It wasted screen real estate and serves no purpose (for me and others as noted by other posts). At the very least allow a single action to dismiss all Suggested Friends for some reasonable period of time.

  • Agree it’s incredibly annoying. At a minimum have a button to dismiss them all. Trying to hit that little cross in the corner of the box means I’m missing a lot and clicking into people’s profiles that I don’t know and don’t want to know. I’m at the point where I don’t like signing on actual friends because of the torrent of stupid friend requests that invariably follow. Strava help us out, it’s frigging annoying.
