Google Maps helps Thanksgiving

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving

Google Maps is helping to make your Thanksgiving less stressful

Check Google Maps for your last minute Thanksgiving needs

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving Tuesday

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving Tuesday

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving!!! The folks at Google Maps used trends from past three years to help make your holiday plans a bit easier. How you ask? Well, Google Maps looked into what people were interested in and searching for most in the past three years during the holiday season and the results can help a bit in the future planning for all of us!

For detailed inside look you can check:

Check the post on the Google Official Blog Get ahead this Thanksgiving with Google Maps

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving Wednesday

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving Wednesday

For a summary and for your comfort, read on:

If you are driving out of town for the holidays, start driving on Tuesday (if possible), you will avoid more traffic prone Wednesday. For the drive back home choose Sunday instead of Saturday, which tends to be more busy.

Holiday Hours are here! Google Maps now has holiday hours for businesses. Be sure to check the business hours when searching for last minute needs, be it pies, ham or liquor! Check the closing time, it is much more convenient than getting there to find out it is closed and then having to search for another one.

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving Thursday

Google Maps helps Thanksgiving Thursday

  1. People searched for buffet restaurants most on Thanksgiving Day, in fact it was numero uno search term on Google Maps for past years. But, in Chicago….we searched for bars, indeed holidays are too much for many to handle plus Wednesday before Thanksgiving is a very big night our here (Chicago)…maybe the searches just used after midnight trend and got those results?
  2. Electronic stores, malls and outlet malls, appliances and Christmas trees are all on the Black Friday shopping list, according to the Google Maps statistics from past few years.

On the other hand, isn’t stress what Holidays are all about?! Whether you will use Google Maps or decide to get lost in a good holiday spirit….all the bests to You and Yours during this Holiday Season!

Google+ Update, Communities & Collections focus

Google+ Update

Google+ Update now focuses more on Communities and Collections

Google+ Update is finally here, after a lot of speculation during this year Google released the update for Google+ pages and now will focus more on Communities, where you can join a discussion on a topic of interest (be it zombies or wine, etc.) and Collections, where you can find information and learn about the topic of your interest.

Google+ Update Nov 2015 Dragon Final Animation

Google+ Update Nov 2015 Project Dragon Final Animation

On November 17, 2015 Eddie Kessler, Director of Streams commented Google’s Official Blog

Introducing the new Google+

There were two features they kept coming back to: Communities, which now average 1.2 million new joins per day, and Collections, which launched just five months ago and is growing even faster. Whether it’s the Nonfiction Addiction Community, where people can be found discussing the best in Crime or Travel storytelling, or the Watch Project Collection, where more than 40,000 people are following an antique watch hobbyist, these are the places on Google+ where people around the world are spending their time discovering and sharing things they love. And so we’ve reimagined Google+ to help them do that. Today, we’re starting to introduce a fully redesigned Google+ that puts Communities and Collections front and center. Now focused around interests, the new Google+ is much simpler. And it’s more mobile-friendly—we’ve rebuilt it across web, Android and iOS so that you’ll have a fast and consistent experience whether you are on a big screen or small one. You’ll need to opt-in to this new version of Google+ on the web to see the changes—check out our Google+ post for more on how to give it a try.

Of course, Communities and Collections is not where the update stops, the new Google+ makes it easier to post, search, connect, and keep up with great content in a fully redesigned home stream. They also made sure the content loads fast and works without a hitch on all devices, big and small.

Go ahead and give Google+ a try today, share your opinion of what you think. Google is always improving so for sure this is just one of the many updates to come, which we always welcome.

To preview the new Google+ sign in and click ‘Let’s go’ once you see it. Enjoy the experience!
