"Map Your Valentine" with Google to remember a special place



Google has a special "Map Your Valentine" feature today that you can use to send a special valentine to remind someone of a special place significant to your relationship. The valentine is delivered via email and after searching for your special location you can choose from street view or map view then add a personal message before sending.


The recipient of your valentine will receive an email with the phrase "Sometimes what means the most isn't something. It's somewhere" and a link to a special page. When they click on the heart on the page  they'll hear a brief strum of Cupid's harp and then the special valentine you created for them will open.screen_shot_2011-02-14_at_1.37.53_am.png

This is a fun idea and a great way to bring back some special memories from your relationship. You could even send several of these to your special someone throughout the day today for a romantic trip down memory lane. And don't worry, even if you receive a valentine sent in street view you can change it to map view, giving you a better chance of remembering the spot and hopefully keeping you out of trouble.
