Today marks the day we reached 200,000+ members on Local Guides Connect. Over the last 9 months, Local Guides from around the world have come together on Connect, joining conversations about meet-ups, feedback and feature requests, travel advice, and mapping know-how and sharing their stories. Below you can see some gifs of our team in New York, Singapore, and London celebrating. If you would like to join us in commemorating this moment, share a picture or video of you celebrating in the comments!
It is a significant milestone for this new community and with more than 20 million Local Guides around the world who contribute to Google Maps every day, we look forward to seeing this group grow even more. We hope that you have made new friends, shared your own local experiences, and continue to have fun contributing to Google Maps where your contributions help people and businesses around the world.
