i'm on goog map all the time,this is first time i see the pics on the bottom(on PC)
if i understand things correctly-they are now posting users pictures that are posted as public and tagged properly to location(i post those albums all the time).
as you can see-if you roll mouse over the picture at the bottom-it will show you on the map where this place is located
