Self-Management
Our French community has now moved to self-management and now grants areas to the French users!
Félicitations.
They join Brazil, Italy, Hungary, Malaysia, The UK, The Netherlands, Belgium, Israel & Spain.

Community & Social
New Waze Facebook groups for Brasília and Rosario are available – check them out!

There are also 2 new Twitter accounts made by our fans: @wazebikers & @WazeSerbia.

Some CONGRATULATIONS are in-order to OyyoDams & khaytsus, as they joined the 200,000 edits club!

And to mrgrumpy who got 300,000 edits – awesome job!

Meetups
We just came back from our Meetup in Bratislava and it was GREAT!
We got to meet our community-leaders in Slovakia, Romania, Austria, Czeck Republic & Hungary.
We got their feedback, heard their ideas and needs and discussed future features and requirements, whereas everyone had the opportunity to meet Ehud and Amir (2 of the Waze founders and current managers) and to ask them any sort of technical questions.
Many thanks to Guri211 - who set this up and executed a flawless event, and to all other community leaders who attended it.


Waze Map Editor
The INTL editor has been transferred to a new infrastructure, meaning that map updates will be much more frequent as you might have noticed on our Status page & Facebook page.

Advertising
We have recently launched our brand new advertising platform, allowing any business which has a physical location to self-provision a commercial-account and promote it on our map.Please note that all applications are first verified by our advertising team and go through quality assurance and compliance-check before they get approved.Some of you may have already seen such advertising pins (Dunkin' Donuts in the USA & Total ERG in Italy, for example) while driving around.
You can read more about it on our site.
