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

  • Yet another feature request from so many users over such a long period that Strava management continues to ignore. Just like searching for routes, the option to choose a chronological display order, etc., etc., Strava continues to set new standards in ignoring customers.

    I can only draw one of two conclusions: either they are so financially strapped they can't afford customer service staff to read customer requests and developers to implement widely requested features, or they just don't give a stuff. Shame.

    The CEO (Quarles) is ex- Instagram and Facebook. Probably tells us all we need to know.

  • Is it so difficult to make PM or Strava ignores us?

  • Any updates on this feature? Sure would be great to contact some for ride? I have a small group that uses another messenger, but Strava needs to implement this already...

  • Maybe we all need to switch to Bereda Training if Strava can't do this. I'd rather not but really Strava - not having the private message function is a bit absurd.

  • How can Strava have ignored this request for 7 years? I've been using Strava for about a year and a half and would like to see private messaging. I have people on my Strava that I can't contact in any other way without asking for emails and phone numbers.

  • This is the primary reason I have used Strava less and less, and it seems many of my strava friends are doing the same. The thing that differentiate Strava from a regular training log is the social aspect, and then they seems to have taken a hard stand against letting users interact directly. Preventing people to interact on a social platform is kind of a strange decision. If I need a training log only, I'll use the one that comes with my sports watch.

    I saw the link about www.beredatraining.com , which seems to be all about communication. I hope it is not only focused on progress and coaching , but also about letting friends communicate and plan rides just for fun. People like me that are over 45 don't necessary strive to improve above a certain level, I just like to stay in shape and have fun.

  • Just adding my support to this. Private messaging / email contact with Strava Club members would be such a good addition. PLEASE STRAVA...make it happen.

  • I also raise my hand to support the addition of private messaging. Not everyone has Facebook or other social media they could use to plan rides/trainings/etc with new friends you make while riding together or in other words, the only source you have to contact the other person is Strava. Please add PMs.

  • It would be very good if the system of exchange of personal messages with other participants worked!!!

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

  • It's been over 5 years and we still don't have a private message system? Come on Strava! How do I share my phone number with riders visiting from out of town so we can link up and ride while feeling safe about my personal infos security?

  • Adding my vote for PMs on Strava. I would use it way more and be more likely to pay for Premium if it had this functionality.

  • Yeah, PM seems like a highly desirable (and common sense) feature.  I just connected with a local rider who's interested in similar rides to me, and I have no way to privately share my contact information with them.  If for whatever reason that's too hard to implement, a simple "share contact info" option would suffice.  It seems like that is what a lot of the comments here are trying to accomplish.

  • 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.

  • It's been almost 7 years in total chief (december 2012).  I'm kinda thinking the PM system is not going to ever happen.  Shame on you Strava for not listening to your users.  But, keep adding useless things in.

  • This is the reason I have not renewed membership.

    Complacency to the 9th degree, not even a comment to the discussion !

    ignore paying customers at your peril !

    All those 2 cents must have amounted to some-thing by now ?

  • Strava takes customer feedback seriously and is considering a messaging function.  There is however an inherent danger that Strava is acutely aware of and extremely sensitive too.  There is a huge responsibility on the part of Strava to optimize the user experience and ROI.  Currently Strava analyses data, that's cool and for most subscribers quite enough.  It is not and should never open itself up as a Twitter like social media platform.

  • Adding my name to the list of those requesting PM capability to Strava.

    Sometimes, you need to ask a rider friend for email but doesn't want the email to be seen by everyone.

  • Since I had commented on this chain, Strava recently reached out to seek my views on how PM functionality could be incorporated. I was very impressed with their interest in this and the depth of thinking they are putting into it. However, I had not realized this was first raised by members some seven years ago. Really wonder why it has taken them so long. Anyway, the good news is that I sense they are truly taking this seriously and seeking the best options to address this interest from their customers. I hope that proves true.

  • David Silcox, having a PM system would be nothing at all like twitter social media, they could easily switch it off by default so people don't get spammed. Pros would obviously get spammed, so having safeguards in place would be important, but at the same time there should be some sort of options for communication for those who want it.

  • I’ve been following this thread for six years.

    My views of how the PM feature should work remain the same as articulated in my 18 January 2014 comment in this thread.

    Glad to hear things are starting to get moving!

  • Duncan Marsh How recently? I'm working on a side project that's related to this...

  • Duncan, I was contacted as well.  It does appear to be inevitable however contrary to Andy's assertion, once a PM system goes live Strava will be a different, less predictible beast.  All of us here that are concerned appear to be mature and want the PM platform for constructive purposes but it only takes one.  I am actually feeling quite proud of myself for getting through that without saying "shit show".

  • " It does appear to be inevitable however contrary to Andy's assertion, once a PM system goes live Strava will be a different, less predictible beast."

    I'm rather baffled at why so many seem to think that a PM system will automatically be swamped with harrassment or other nonsense. Strava already gives users the option to approve or deny follow requests. Just give a couple of similar options for how to handle direct messages and make it opt-in (off by default). Allow all messages, block all messages, only allow messages from those that you follow or that follow you.
