Google to Blur Faces in Street Views Maps

In response to privacy concerns, Google will be blurring out any human face appearing in Google Maps street views.

Street views are available in Google Maps for both Milwaukee and Madison. Simply do a Google search for an address in either city and click on the "Street Views" link in the resulting map. You'll see a panoramic view from the street in which you can pan, rotate and zoom, as well as, move forward or backward down the street.

Thanks to Bev Butula for passing on the Search Engine Journal article about the blurring addition.
