Google Maps Polling Users About Familiar Places In The App

Pegman Google MapsGoogle said on Google+ that they are now randomly polling Google Maps app users when they are viewing a place listing about that place.

If you open the Google Maps app, search for a place to eat or hang out, Google may pop up a poll or a "riddle" as I think they are calling it.

The questions asked include:

  • Is this place good for groups?
  • Is this place popular for dinner?

I am sure there are many more questions but Google offers three answers, Yes, No or Not Sure.
