This is a question about exporting, but what about a simple "share" feature?

According to this news story, you can now share Google Maps on Google Plus. Google also has a support page with instructions on how to share Google Maps locations and results. Another Google support page even has information on how to allow collaborators to edit shared maps.

Finally this blog notes that is a mobile app (GroupMe) that provide map sharing functionality. I'm sure other apps are also available.

Thanks very much! I'm not sure if this allows sharing of stars, but it does allow sharing of a lot of stuff that I previously wasn't aware of. – InquilineKea Feb 24 '12 at 1:10
Google support page link is broken – STEVER Jan 6 at 20:39
@STEVER, thanks for catching that - I've updated the answer to include a working Google support page. The old support page (support.google.com/maps/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=144365) must've been removed. – JW8 Jan 7 at 4:22
