Google now allows adding a “map to a scrap, first click the text box to write and edit a scrap. You'll then see customization options on the top. Just click the red placemark icon (see pic) to add a map to your message. You can search for a specific address or place (anywhere in the world!), or you can manually drop a placemark onto the map. Both options are easy, even if you're unfamiliar with Google Maps. Once you select an address, your scrap draft will look like in pic below. Just post it and your friend will see the map you added. If the map is clicked, it loads the Google Maps page for that same spot, so your friend can further explore the area, check Street View photos, and even find public transit, driving or biking directions to get there,” noted Google.
