If you are a fan of Google Maps then you are going to love this. Google just announced on Monday, June 7, that it has added the maps feature to its popular Google Buzz service, which gives users instant access and easy sharing capabilities.
The new addition is a feature that is optional and needs to be enabled within a user’s Google account under the service settings then by clicking on the Labs tab. Google Maps has become a competitive tool in the online world, and now it can be added directly to a Google Buzz e-mail.
