According to Search engine land a number of New York stores have been contacted to see if they would be interested in featuring the insides of their stores on Googles new product – Google Store Views.
IF this takes off, then 360 tours will hopefully build in popularity, where the call for this type of media will be needed on websites. Individual could upload their own 360 tours.
Stores benefit from having more exposure.
Possible GPS tagging of stores and 360 tours.
