Google Maps is being transformed into a social network

Google is turning its Maps into a social network. The business has long had a ratings feature, called "Local Guides," where users were encouraged to post photos and share comments about the places they visited.

Maps

In addition, Google lets you follow the "Local Guides" that you consider to be valuable so you can see their recommendations for other places that have gone. If you like what person X said, then it makes sense to want to see his opinion on other local restaurants, bars, parks, hotels, etc. kind of FourSquare / Yelp. Google has the data, the users, and you are likely to already use Maps from these two applications.

According to a Google statement “People in Bangkok, Delhi, London, Mexico City, New York, Osaka, San Francisco, Sao Paulo and Tokyo will soon see the 'Top Local Guides' appear on the 'For You' tab in the mobile app Maps ”. When you follow one of these Local Guides, their recommendations will only appear on Google Maps for you so you can be inspired by ideas for things to do and places to go. "

The new feature is not yet active, at least on our device, but Google says it will be out soon.
