Since launching Street View in new cities and countries around the world we've heard a bunch of stories from friends, colleagues and the media about how it's been put to use - from the practical to the downright surprising.
We've been told about virtual trips down memory lane from people who've since moved across the other side of the world or students reminiscing about their old haunts and even heard that Street View helped severe agoraphobia. And these are from the few we know about. We figure there must be many more interesting stories about how Street View is being used in daily life. If you have an interesting story you'd like to share then we'd love to hear it. You can let us know here. We may even "Tweet" your story on our brand new Twitter account!
