    I just got confused a few days ago. Are they trying to make it one service?

    A few months ago they merge Google Places with Google +, so now its Google + Local.

    Google Places still exists because Google + Local is only available to brick in mortar business's if you are service based then you aren't allowed + ( Social Features) but there technically is 4 Google products that show in Places, Maps etc. you have
    personal Google +
    Google + Local (Merged)
    Google + business (Places)
    Google Maps
    they all link up in the SERP and have the PIN drop
