Google-Views

Google recently updated its Views platform with comments and +1 support. This lets people reach out to photographers about their photo spheres and opens up conversations for subjects like technique and travel. Packed with awesome images, some of the community produced photo spheres have already racked up millions of views, according to Google Maps product manager, Evan Rapoport.

Whether you’re just saying “nice picture” or having a full-blown conversation, these new features will likely breathe new life into images that people have most likely forgotten. Lastly, the ability to +1 and comment on photo spheres set the stage for budding photography clubs looking for new ways to share their work with the rest of the world.
