Panoramio Going To Google

Google continues attempts to offer every service imaginable online by purchasing Panoramio ,a Spanish photo-sharing website.

Panoramio's technology allows user to pin pictures to Google's online
maps to show where they were taken.The site boasts more than 1 million
photos and more than 300,000 registered users.
two firms have been allies for several months as Google used the
Spanish firm's technology to let photographers link photos to points on
Google Earth maps where they were created.
the acquisition Google will need to deal with Panoramio's user
permission service.As part of its terms of service,Panoramio allows
users to have their personal information deleted if the
service is acquired by another company.A site has been set up to allow
Panoramio users to pull their photos and user information from the site
before the Google deal is finalised.
