Google +Snippets Now On Google Maps [googleblog.blogspot.com]
We want to make sharing across Google just as easy, so today we're bringing +snippets to Google Maps.
With today’s launch, Google Maps joins other Google products like Books, Offers and Product Search in having +snippets. And like Maps, what you see onscreen is what you share—just click on “Share...” in the Google+ bar to reveal the +snippet...
We’ll be rolling out +snippets to many more Google products in the future,...


The world's gone share crazy!

Share crazy and hyperlink crazy. Amazon wants us to share our Wish Lists, and Pandora wants us share our Radio Stations, and everybody wants us to share our demographic information.

Google's documentation on +Snippets reminds me of the early days of hyperlink hell in Windows help files, where there was a link to every reference, but no clear overview in one place.

I haven't had a chance to check all the links out in detail, but it looks like local business could make good use of this. Some of the features remind me of what Facebook is doing with its ads.
