Google Map Profiles
Google have today announced that users can now create their own Google Maps profile. To create your own profile simply sign in to Google Maps and click on the My Profile link in the upper right hand corner. Your profile will then be available in any 'My Maps' you have created.
If someone likes one of your 'My Maps' they will now be able to view your profile and find other maps that you have created.
Here is the now obligatory Google video introducing this new feature.
