Google maps

Google Maps have been a very helpful resource whenever you want to know the route from your source to destination. You can also create you custom maps and share those with your friends. Yesterday, Google Team also added +1 button to Google Maps. Earlier +1 button was launched for Google web results then for the websites, after that it appeared on YouTube too and now Google Maps. In the below steps you’ll learn how to create you own custom Google maps, share it with your friends and allow others to recommend your maps using +1 button.

Step1 : Search and Create custom maps

Once you’re done finalizing the route from your source to destination, you can click on “My places” as shown below and enter the¬† fields such as Title & Description of the map. You also have option to make your map public or allow a limited access to only those who have the URL for the map.

Click done once you’ve finished all the settings.

Step2: Share Google Maps with friends and recommend your custom map using +1 button

After creating you map you can create a short URL for your map and share it with your friends. You can also recommend by doing  +1 yourself and this new +1 button will also allow your friends & others to recommend this map publicly.

+1 Google Map

Although, +1 button for Google Maps was launched today but I think there is some kind of issue in this. If you might have noticed that I created above map just a few minutes ago and its +1 count is already 11k. Google will soon fix this issue, till the time you create and share route of your favorite destination with your friends.
