It's a big deal to me Linda & to a lot of others so I'll be watching for your post. And the beauty of this forum is the diversity of opinions so please, go with your gut!I was going to work on a big post this week with some important observations about the new Google Maps, but then Phil's post about how the Maps changes are not a big deal, kinda made me feel like I was over-reacting.
But this shines a light on the fact that maps is going to start taking more center stage. And once the maps update goes live, things will change on a few levels.
Google Maps is going to become kind of a big deal, not huge, but big - I feel it in my bones. So I'm going to go ahead and work on that post...
Totally agree with the G+ part and I'm not worried about any of that because like you said I think that part is going to be pretty much a non-issue.Gotcha. My point about Google+ adoption is as follows:
If the average user of Maps doesn?t use Google+, then the ?circles? filter is pretty useless.
If Google doesn?t get more people to be active (and eventually ?Top?) reviewers, then the ?Top Reviewers? filter is pretty useless,too.
Without those, the new Maps is mostly a facelift.
