Place Pins also contain further details like the phone numbers and addresses of place on the Pin so that the user can easily pull up useful information on a trip or while on a night out or even on an unplanned weekend outing. This feature will additionally benefit businesses that are attached to food and travel industry for example, it can help people find and discover exclusive things to do in the area they are visiting.
