Are you a traveller or an explorer who likes helping others find the best spots in town, and making new friends around the world?
If yes, I personally recommend you to join a new Google's community program, Google Local Guides, which was publicly announced in the blog post on November 13, 2015.
Local Guides is a global community of explorers who share photos, answer local questions, add or fix places, and write reviews on Google Maps. Millions of people rely on contributions like yours to decide where to go and what to do.If you are asking me any reasons to join this Google Local Guides? For me, I have five reasons to join:
1. Contribute to society
2. Help others find the best places

4. Make new friends
Thousands of people joining the community at everywhere Google Maps is available. Due to the recent introduction to new community forum for local guides, Local Guides Connect - a new way for us to start conversations, swap local tips, and plan meet-ups with a friendly community of fellow explorers in our areas. It is a good chance to keep in touch, even face-to-face, and make new friends with other local guides in the globe.
5. Keep connected with Googlers
You want to say hi or ask questions to Googlers (Local Guides team)? You can make it on Local Guides Connect so easily. They are friendly to help reply to your questions, I think :-).
