A Favorite is simply a local hot spot. It’s easy to pick and add them to a folder (like a playlist). Just type in the location’s name in an ‘autocomplete’ field, select it and save. No additional text and images are needed as they are automatically added from Google’s database of 100 million+ locations worldwide.
An Experience includes a location and your own narrative about it. Write as much as you wish, add your own images and a rating (from “Pass it by” to “Passionista Must-See”) to help guide other users.
For expert accounts, all your Favorites automatically become Recommendations for other users, while only Experiences with the higher ratings ( “Absolutely Awesome” and “Passionista Must-See”) would appear in user searches.
