MapQuest Share to Facebook

Sharing is a big part of being connected on the Web. We share links over IM, tweet random thoughts on Twitter and share a little bit of everything on Facebook. Today we’re sharing that we have added a new feature on MapQuest to make it simple to share maps, directions and places to your Facebook friends.

Share to Facebook on MapQuest.com

Share to Facebook will allow you to post a note, small map and descriptive link on your Facebook wall right from MapQuest.com. So, in addition to letting your friends know that you’re headed to a concert later this week or sharing pictures from your latest trip, you can now also use Facebook to share some helpful location information.

Share to Facebook Pop-up Bubble on MapQuest.com

Here’s how you use it:

  1. Get a MapQuest Map, Directions, or Search
  2. Click the Facebook Share icon
  3. Log into Facebook and authorize MapQuest to post to your Facebook Wall
  4. Add a note
  5. Click ‘Publish’ to post it to Facebook

It’s not a complicated feature, but it is another example of how MapQuest is evolving and responding to the changing ways people share information (location-related and otherwise) online. Now get out there and share!
