Hi, I'm Skylar. If you want to drop a pin in Google Maps, you'll have to first log in with your Google account, or Gmail address. Once you've done that, go to Google Maps, and at the top click My Places, it's here in the left. Then click create map, and you'll probably see this window, if you do, click new map. And then you'll see a basic map of where you are. So type in the place where you'd like to drop the pin. So I'll drop it in Portland, Maine, wait for it to load a little bit, okay. So here's a pin in here already for the area that I searched, and I could save that if I wanted to, but right here is the add marker button. So I'll click that, and then you'll see that your pointer turns to a cross hair, so I'll drop that down here, just click and type in the name of the place I would like to mark. I can add a picture. So, from a URL for example, I'll just go to Flickr and grab a URL and paste that in there, and then click save and now I have a saved marker. So that in a really basic sense is how you an add a pin to Google Maps. Thanks for watching, I'm Skylar.
