Considering stopping using Strava since the update. Garmin connect does 90% of it. Already cancelled premium account.

    What happened with the update that you are so unhappy with?

    Mostly its that they changed the way its sorts activities so its no longer chronological, its now handled by a algorithm based on popularity, time etc. - and they are opening up the flood gates with the "posts" feature. Wont bother most people but these are the same "features" that made me stop using Instagram 90% of the time and why Facebook sucks. I really liked how Strava was a kinda a "real time" app, its new CEO is the old Instagram CEO. Ill stop complaining on my posts, but its just a shame.

    And to be fair, those features work well if you follow a million people. It will help give you better activities in your feed and keep some activities from being lost. It's just if you only follow a small group of people the feed gets all garbled. When the change first happened I thought my Garmin's timestamps were malfunctioning.

    I didn't even know that that stuff was going on, that does kind of suck. I don't follow that many people so that is probably why I didn't notice it as much

    I think that it would be much more ideal if they had something in the settings where you could select how your feed is displayed, so you could decide between chronological or popular

Kudos
