Is it me or have the last couple of Google Maps updates been social centric? This next one is no different, with Google Maps 5.2 adding more social features to both Google Latitude and Google Places with HotPot.
In 5.2, Google expands on the check-in feature of Latitude by allowing users to ping friends to find out where they are. When you
stalk see a nearby Latitude friend on the map just give them a ping and they will receive an Android notification from you asking them to check in at a place. If your victim friend checks in using your request, you will get a notification right back so you know which place to go to murder meet them.
