Tour Builder is Google Earth’s new plugin or web application that lets you create amazing tours with interactive maps. Tour Builder lets you write down your story and upload images to make it more interesting for the readers. But, the one thing that makes it distinct from other tour builders is that it marks the location of the places you visited, on its inbuilt Google Map.

Because this tour builder is from Google, you can easily login with your username and password for your Google Account and start writing about your own exciting tour. Maybe, its about your career growth or any other success story you want to put forward to the world. Go ahead! Do it right now.

I gotta say that I loved the way guys at Google think. Each time they come up with something, they make sure that it stays in hearts of people for sometime. This time, they have come up with this new experiment that combines Google Earth’s features with Social Networking to come up with an excellent Tour Builder.

“Did you say, social networking?” Yes, I did. You can create your own story and open it to the world so everyone can know more about you. It maybe a profile you want to create and make it more interactive. I am thinking of creating my career profile with my employment history on this tour builder and link it with my résumé.

How do I use Tour Builder?

That’s it! Isn’t that simple? Once you click on the Add to tour button, it gets added to your story. You would want to tell people more about the location, your experience, about the cultural, their attire, the type of food and what not.

Your story with Tour Builder is private until you share it. Moreover, you’re telling the world about your trip, so it makes sense when you’re sharing it, doesn’t it?

You can share the direct link to this story on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ account or send an email with the link to your story. It is also a good idea to change the access type to “Public” so that anyone can read about your story in this tour builder.
