Google Places wants to make New York City better, whether it’s by helping you discover new places you’ll love, supporting local businesses or bringing members of the community together through a variety of activities.
Please join us for a special discussion with our Tech Lead Manager and local Community Manager about the future and usage of geolocation products. We'd like to know your thoughts on using the desktop and mobile applications, how you use the search and review functionality, the aspects of the app and types of reviews you find useful, and how Google Places could better serve Brooklyn overall.
To thank you for your participation, @GoogleNYC would like to buy you lunch! In addition, they’d like to give you a chance to win dinner for two at reBar. Come and be part of the Google Places community. Please fill out and refer to this form for participation guidelines and check out these quick tutorials on using Google Places for Android and iPhone. We’ll send a follow-up survey on July 25th as part of the workshop.
