Scrap those Maps

It is indeed great to know that Orkut is still alive and people still use it... above all Google is still adding functionalities to it. The latest one being adding maps to your scraps...

You can search for a specific address or place (anywhere in the world!), or you can manually drop a placemark onto the map. Both options are easy, even if you're unfamiliar with Google Maps.

Once you select an address, your scrap draft will look like this:

Just post it and your friend will see the map you added. If the map is clicked, it loads the Google Maps page for that same spot, so your friend can further explore the area, check Street View photos, and even find public transitdrivingor biking directions to get there.
