Where is everyone? Maps on profile pages

Something I love about Launchpad is that I can quickly get a feeling for the people whose work I come across. Some of what you see on a Launchpad profile page is more geared towards knowing the person than their work.

We’ve added a bit more to that “getting to know you” part of the profile page with our new Google Maps mash-up. Now you’ve got the option of showing other people where in the world you are by flagging your location.

This is pretty cool for a bit of fun but when it comes to organising team meetings – in person or online – it becomes really useful. Take a look at the profile page for the Launchpad Developers team. On our team map you get a quick-glance feeling for where in the world members of the Launchpad team are.

Visit your profile page to set your location.
