YesGraph is joining forces with Lyft! YesGraph's whole team and technology for social graph analysis will fortify Lyft's in-house referral program. YesGraph’s public API will deactivate on August 31, 2017. It’s an incredibly exciting time, and I want to personally thank everyone who has supported the company.
At YesGraph, we worked with some of the most incredible companies on referrals and sharing, including Airbnb, Atlassian, Gusto, Hired, and many more.
I started YesGraph as a result of my time at Dropbox, where I spent countless hours working to optimize their famous referral program. Knowing how powerful referrals can be, we wanted to make it accessible and smarter for any company. Using machine learning and social graph analysis, YesGraph can actually recommend who people should invite.
Building a platform like YesGraph for multiple companies was always a trade-off between broader impact and singular depth. Lyft is working towards a future where cities are more livable and built around people, not cars. In the ride sharing space, getting more new drivers is the biggest growth challenge. Lyft treats drivers better, and our ambition at YesGraph is to drive faster growth by amplifying driver loyalty through referrals.
I want to thank our investors, friends, customers, advisors, and the team at Lyft for their support and encouragement.
