Direct Messages on Strava

I think that Strava needs more social function in its system in order to increase its attractivity and its expansion. 

Some of my suggestions are :

 

1. A personal message system

2. An event scheduler which permits athletes to plan a group event 

 

I think both features would help to develop the commuity

  • There has to be a reason why this isn't available. I wonder what Strava mgmt's opinions are on the matter.

  • Any update on this? Why the resistance Steava tram?

  • It's been 3+ years since the last official post. Progress should not take this long. Private messaging is a great way to meet new riders, plan events, and exchange numbers.

  • I agree with Seth, I didn't pay Strava to "litter" my feed with ads. 

    Of course one had to give permission for others to use messaging.
    Of course a cheaper Summit would be welcome, but again: No ads please!

    To introduce messaging to members would be better than no messaging at all, I keep forgetting WHY I am a Summit member and why I pay Strava my hard earnt money.

    I'm not sure Stava feels they have to expand their platform even more.
    I have the impression they are pretty dominating as it is.

  • It is interesting to think of why it is that Strava doesn't want private messages when it is so obvious to do so.  Perhaps it has something to do with the existence of PM moving Strava from the Quantitative Self to the Social Networking industry segment.  Better to be the tops in Quantitative Self rather than niche also ran in Social Networking.  Anybody have a better theory?  

    Cycling is a gregarious activity, and cyclists are generally looking to form groups.  Strava with PM could greatly help facilitate this aspect to enjoyment of the sport.  PM'ing for cyclists would not be a replacement for actual interaction, but a means for its achievement.  A PM'ing Strava community would attract more users, subscribers, and ward against defections.  But...no.   No explanation given, just....no.

  • Definitely +1 for a private messaging system. I semi-randomly followed a few runners who I didn't know who participated in a recent local running event, choosing runners who were roughly of the same ability level (give or take). Some followed me back and it's been great to interact with these strangers, seeing their runs, giving them kudos and receiving them, and exchanging comments. It's a great way of getting social. A private messaging system would be an extra benefit to this. I'm currently organising a relay team for a 100km trail running event and being able to send a direct message to some of the people I follow would be great. Then I could pitch to them about joining my team for the event and include my contact details without having them be public.

    Of course, with direct messages, there would be a risk of abuse. You could have extra settings for direct messages where a person could choose to only allow people who they follow to contact them. Or people could choose not to enable direct messages.

  • +1 for Strava-stalking.

    I'm new to an area, have noticed (an)other rider(s) who is very consistent on times in my area, rides at about the same frequency, etc... Would be nice to be able to ping them with a "Hi - interested in riding this week?"

  • Hard to believe there isn't a pm function yet.

  • Yep, PM is needed.  There are folks I only know thru Strava and need better ways to communicate than using comments, at least till I get to know them better.  Although, since many of us are on Strava so often, especially after epic group rides, then PM would still be the most convenient avenue.  keep up the good work!

  • A message system is essential nowadays. Obviously the obligatory PM system. An "open to all followers" message system whereby you could post a message saying, for example "going for a ride tomorrow 8am, anyone interested?" and it pops up on the dashboard of all those following you with a facility to reply, etc. Another possibility is - without wanting to copy the likes of facebook too much - a sharing facility where you could post a message that your followers are able to "share" and their followers etc etc. first thought that comes to mind is for stolen bikes being spotted amongst the strava community. Could also be used for promoting local events and things...

  • An easy solution would we a button "contact by email" available for people you follow.

  • Private messaging - surely a must!

    What's keeping you from fascilitating this?

    I'd be interested to know.

    Thanks for Strava!

  • It's rather mind boggling that after a year and a half that there isn't a PM system yet. That's a pretty basic feature to be omitting.

  • Here is a perfect example of the frustration no messaging can have:  Travel to an unknown area for work, vaction, whatever and seeing a lot of riders in the area you are going and not being able to contact anyone for potential rides.  It is unbelieveable a social riders site like Strava has no messaging for riders to contact one another.

  • I stopped my premium membership and will continue it as soon as there is a private messaging system available.

  • A private message system would be awesome! My buddies and I currently plan rides using previous ride comments, which is awkward (but still a little better than trying to organize everyone under another social media platform).

  • I was shocked when I found out this didn't already exist and I had to go and find a ride the person I was trying to contact was on and comment on their ride.

  • Another vote for a PM system here!

    I had a nice chat with another commuter yesterday.  We're now following each other on here, and I was going to ping him a message to see if he fancied an MTB outing, but will have to do that on an existing ride of his, which feels a bit strange and stalkerish!

  • It's been almost 2 years since this suggestion was posted and it evidently has a lot of support. I'd like to think Strava are listening and are in the process of implementing this now.
