My Maps personal mashups launched tonight on Google. It’s very easy to use and, using the vernacular, “cool.” Below (click to enlarge) is a quick mashup I did (about 10 minutes) for my longer post at Search Engine Land.
Microsoft’s Collections was an earlier but somewhat less intuitive version of this functionality. And Ask City offers some of the same capabilities as does Yahoo. I quickly compare and discuss those features and capabilities as part of my SEL post above.
Play with it and tell me whether you like it and think a mainstream audience will start doing this on a large scale? It’s very simple to use.
