Synchronize Your Google Maps with your contacts. Science economics theory claims that geography defines human character and even economics. Here we are in Southern synchronicity on Google Maps with Peter Quinton, a writer, solicitor, and freelance. Synchronicity online is a state of resonating thoughts and activity we got to know perfectly through our experience on Google Plus. The synchronicity on Google Maps relates to the way we operate on Google Maps by creating and following public Places Lists.
Public Places Lists allows us to remain connected on the web.
I’m following the Public Placed List Peter Quinton created:

Create a Public List on Google Maps
To clarify the steps of creating your own public list, let’s look into my South Tyrol’ list.
- Open Google Maps app
- Go to “Your Places”
- Choose “Saved” and hit the plus icon
- Name the list and add a description
- Associate a hashtag to your Place List
Google can even feature your Places List. Check the answer in Google Maps Help Center to learn about the requirements.
My 0.20c: open the image you uploaded for the location and from the three-dot menu hit “Add to visited laces”. You will see the information about the places you visited update on your public list. Instead of “visited 0 of 20 places” Google will show the updated information “visited 20 of 20 places”. That is if you wish people who follow your list to be sure you have personally visited the places you are recommending.
“South Tyrol” list evidence places I visited and recommend for that top travel destination. The last image shows I find the “South Tyrol” list under Collections in my Google app on Android.
You can personalise your Places List. Clicking “edit” activates the option to choose cover photos for the List. I recommend choosing your own photos where possible for best engagement with your audience. Note that users on Google Maps see photos on the location in different order though.
In this example I chose the Library as the spotlight of my visit in Neustiff Monastery
I populate the list by sharing my photos on Instagram and Twitter and adding links to my lists.
