Did you know that there will soon be close to 500,000 active Uber and Lyft drivers in the US? Four years ago that number was ZERO. Amazing, isn’t it? This post is all about how to stay connected to the most helpful driver network in the country and let it help you make better decisions. We hope that you gain enough from the Pulse network to want to become a top contributor yourself in the near future!
Plus, we’re showing off our inaugural list of top 10 drivers in the country that you definitely should be following. You can see their past posts too!
How to find our best drivers
What’s one of the largest benefits to having around 10% of all Uber and Lyft drivers in the US on SherpaShare? The collective expertise that a vast and diverse user community brings. At any moment, there are thousands of local experts in the app who are posting and replying. Here are a few tips on how you can stay connected to other drivers on the Pulse app:
Find Posts: Interested in seeing the top posts around the world, go to “Top”. If you want to see what drivers near you are up to, go to “Nearby”. You can also sort by the other categories in the Pulse menu.
Add Favorites: When you find a post that you want to keep handy for later, just click “Add Favorite”. Then you can revisit that helpful question or hilarious post at any time in your Favorites tab.
View Posters: When you click on the username of another person in chat, it allows you to see all of their past posts as well as their Karma score, then if pertinent, you can even reach out to them with any lingering questions, or just start a fun conversation!
How to get Karma
But, how do you actually get Karma? It’s simple. Just be active in the community. You’ll get a point every time you post something or reply to others, as well as when you share a post or if your posts are upvoted or favorited.
Posters like lyftposse are very active on SherpaShare Pulse, posting and replying all the time. That’s why lyftposse‘s Karma is 1,074, the highest in the community.
Introducing our inaugural Top 10
Here are the folks who’ve already made a name for themselves in the chat community in the first few weeks of Pulse being live. You can join them too, and have drivers around the country follow everything you say.
#10: geektinker (267 karma), #9: gooberandswyft (370), #8: hippychick (392), #7: wolf (405), #6: michaelc41 (617), #5: ridesharedriver (692), #4: topdawgcincy (751), #3: bungy (857), #2: curriemrusmc (913), #1: lyftposse (1073)
Big shout out to the top 10! And to everyone else who’s so close to getting up there as well. Start favoriting and following these guys if you aren’t already. Their stories, tips, and insights are invaluable. You will either learn a lot or be very entertained. Pick your poison!
Bonus: Be a superhero
You may have noticed drivers having superhero names and wondered what that’s all about. For example: curriemrusmc is “The Punisher” and bungy is “Captain America.” From time to time we’ll select some of the top members of the community to give them these badges visible on their profile. Just saying… we might be contacting you soon!
You can download SherpaShare Pulse for free on the App Store. The Android version of Pulse is coming soon, but in the meantime you can still use the chat feature in our existing Android app. Using Pulse? Leave us a comment!
