Bug? Google Maps Drops Owner Uploaded Photos

Feb 10, 2012 • 8:44 am | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Maps

This is pretty scary, if you go to your Google Maps business listing, any photos you may have uploaded seem to have been completely removed! This even happened on my business listing where I had a ton of photos uploaded by yours truly and they are all gone.

Here is the backend where it shows I have zero photos uploaded:

Here is a picture only showing pictures from the web and not pictures I've uploaded:

Vanessa from the Google Maps team said they are looking into the bug. She said:

We're investigating to see if there's a bug going on. Keep posting your examples -- links to Place pages are most helpful.

To submit your issue, go to the Google Places Help forum and give Vanessa your URL.

I haven't seen this in Australia. Hope it doesn't become another thing to make Places not as 'easy' as Google say it's supposed to be !

 Agreed, there are dozens of small bugs in Google, but this one has gotten more publicity.
