    What's the difference between the Nearby under the Photos tab and the Nearby under the Magazine tab? They do show different locations, for instance there are 2 locations in Texas under the Magazine Nearby but none under the Photos Nearby...

    ... Now the Photos Nearby had updated and has the geo-tags I added to my photos, but it still does not match the Magazine Nearby.

    I would use the geo-tagging feature more if it were improved. Maybe you could locate the general area by the city and then zoom or have a smooth zoom? The zoom, click, pan, zoom, click, pan method currently used makes pinpointing exact locations very tedious.

    Why my Peru's locations and others don't apear in this map like they did in the old one?

    @elletra, I think one is for photos and the other for locations but I still don't get this Nearby thing since some of my locations don't show in the map…

    @saidseni I think you're right, and there is definitely a lag for geotags to show up, it took several hours before the geotags I put up were actually on the Photos Nearby map.

    @elletra There should be more Houston area photos now. I just did some and they seem to be showing up already. (I went to high school with you by the way.)
