Congratulations to all Local Guides here, I really identify with this community.
At the last event I attended last month in Sao Paulo I saw that many Local Guides had never participated in the Connect included myself.
How nice that Brazil is getting stronger and we will soon double that number.

 

Parabéns a todos os Local Guides aqui, eu me identifico muito com essa comunidade.
No último evento que participei no mês passado em São Paulo vi que muitos Local Guides nunca havia participado do Connect incluido eu.
Que bom que o Brasil está se destacando e conseguiremos logo dobrar esse número.

I don't see anything evenly remotely connected to 200,000 members on Local Guides Connect.....I see maybe 30 active regular contributors on this forum.Where are all the thousands of local guides from California....and the rest of the USA....and Australia?....where Google Maps is doing better than anywhere else in the world...certainly better then they are doing in California where Yelp nail them 100 to 1 in review numbers.

Wow! This is super cool to see 200K+ members on Local Guides Connect. Much more to come. I'm so excited to see my post on hangouts has been selected as one of the favorite discussions. Also, I'm amused to see that the bunch of meet-ups hosted by us Sri Lanka Local Guides during the "Map your world week" has also been termed as "Memorable Meetups" under the story of six local guides posted by Anuradha. This is amazing. 

@CorrieD here you go see myself cheering the success.

I agree with Zeds....but Iike he suggested


...Yelp likely has "cornered" the market in CA. On the other

hand, there is a "higher signal to noise ratio" here :)
