It looks to me as the 2 Everytrail pages are zoomed to show the complete track, a shorter track should be zoomed in more than say a coast-to-coast track. Was there a way to zoom into only a portion such as a trailhead section?
Okay, this is where I'm coming from: When you go to Facebook, do you spend a lot of time looking at each and every single post/status update from all of your friends, or do you skim through only some of them and only spend time looking at the ones which catch your eye? If you click on a link someone posts, don't you skim through and skip most of the article, unless what you're seeing also catches your eye? So out of the following two screen shots, which would more likely get people to actually spend time looking? :
1. This is what "recently made trips" on EveryTrail.com look like, if someone clicks on a link I post on Facebook or the link above:
2. This is what the default zoom level on EveryTrail looks like if you post a trip which you had "created quite a ways back":
The second screen shot (default zoom level of the past) I would think catches people's interest much more, and they can easily see that blue dot moving around on the map where the pictures are at, versus when it's way zoomed out.
I would think making a map with a default zoom level which isn't "so zoomed out" would be more likely to get noticed if I post on Facebook. That's why I care, and is one point of view.
