Meet a Connect Moderator: Sampson

Connect Moderators are Local Guides just like you and me. They apply the knowledge they’ve gained as active members of our community to moderate Connect and help improve the experience for everyone. You may see them welcoming newcomers, explaining the program, answering questions, and sharing their knowledge with others.

Each month, we share some personal insights from one of our amazing Connect Moderators. This month, meet @SampsonF. Sampson, who currently lives in Hong Kong, has also lived in Taiwan, and speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin. Sampson enjoys editing the map and loves to help others on Connect. Learn more about him below.

Name: Sampson Fung

Location: Hong Kong


What I love about being a Local Guide: It’s great to connect with people from all around the world who share my goals, values, and interests. We have debates and discussions. We teach each other and learn.


Why I'm a Connect Moderator: I am not shy about giving feedback whenever I see something that doesn’t seem right. I like to help people participate in the best way possible. I have received special badges since becoming a Connect Moderator, but I don’t feel pressure to moderate. I just continue doing what I did before I became a Connect Moderator. At the same time, Google Moderators and Googlers put a lot of effort into supporting Connect Moderators, and I learn a lot from them.


My favorite place to explore: I’m drawn to anything sea-related: lighthouses, ports, museums.


My favorite type of contribution(s) to make on Google Maps: I enjoy editing the map, reporting an error, adding a missing place, and more.


Languages I read/write/speak fluently: Cantonese, Mandarin, and English.


Places I'd like to visit: Can I name five? No? Then I would say...the Great Pyramids in Egypt!


One thing I'd like everyone to know about me: I enjoy reading maps, and yet I frequently get lost in the real world. I think that’s because the compasses on my phones have not been good.  Please tell me which phone you believe has the best compass ever! :)

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know @SampsonF. Say hi or ask him a question below as he has a lot to share about Google Maps and Connect.

我想去的地方: 可以列五處嗎?不成?那.... 埃及的大金字塔


我想告訴大家關於我的一件事: 我享受看地圖。但仍常常迷路。我想是我流動電話的指南針都不好。請大家告訴我那支流動電話的指南指是最好的! :)

Yayy @SampsonF! It’s your month here on Connect! Thanks @Atsukot for introducing Sampson to us here on Connect. 


Sampson, when you come to SF next month be sure to visit the Asian Art Museum. It has the largest collection of Asian Art outside of Asia. The museum itself is in the original SF library building. It’s in the middle of Civic Center and across from SF City Hall (which you should also visit too - free to go in).


How high were you up with the tallest building in Taipei behind you? Also how does this building rank in terms of “tallest” globally?
