Is Google Maps Trying To Be A Social Network?

Let's all hope the answer to this question is "no." Seriously, we all know what happens every time Google tries to go all social networky on us.

Google Maps just added a new feature that allows users to create lists of favorite locations, for themselves or to share with family or friends. You can also follow your friends’ lists of favorite spots, or send them yours via text, email, messaging apps, or social media. All of which raises the question: is Google Maps trying to become a social network?
