WHO CAN TRUST GOOGLE ANYMORE ???
After the first petition with 10.500 signatures, in June 2015 Google declared that "Panoramio will stay alive". Now just one year after that statement, they decided to close Panoramio forever. Step by step they destroyed their own platform !!! Google – Earth, User’s Statistics last year suffered a nervous breakdown ! Any sense of credibility and justice is totally lost, together with our work !!!!!!!!! In a normal & democratic world, this isn’t fare comportment.
We can still fight for the preservation of this platform! The address for your protest: Alphabet Inc. Attn Corporate Secretary 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is also our Latest Petition in Change.org, but recent history is proving, that only with petitions we can't do anything, if Google doesn't want to hear our voices & respect the hours we spent to create its empire.
In any case, there is a God, who is seeing all this injustice !
Please share this message with your contacts, any mail and any signature counts!

Καλησπέρα Κε Νίκο υπέροχη φωτογραφία, θα μπορούσα να την χρησιμοποιήσω για πίνακα στο σπίτι μου;
Dear Friends, I would like to be active till the end, but I must do my personal back-up of my photos, because I don't trust Google anymore for nothing, especially after the announcement that Panoramio will not be available after November 4, 2016.
As human beings, with feelings and mind, I think that we can do some steps ahead.
Personally, these six years, using Panoramio, were really very productive and I learned a lot of things about photography and its techniques, making a lot of friends and excursions with them.
Human contact is more important, than every interactive communication, we know it well, but we also enjoyed our conversations via comments or personnal messages, many times confessing things, that even in our real friends we don’t.
I think this solution is better for all of us. Nobody deserves a treatment, like that one we had last two years. Panoramio itself didn’t deserve a treatment like this!
If Google decided to make a step ahead for earning money, although it was stated from the company that Panoramio should be alive after the results of the first petition, we can do more steps ahead in our real life, making travels and taking photos for our pleasure and for sharing with friends in other sites, whatever they will be. Sometimes money isn’t the real profit. Our common journey through Panoramio was our gain.
Dear friends, we keep our contact via Facebook, 500px and Ipernity, or something new at the future. I am wishing to all of you, at first good health and all the best on every way you choose to follow.
Thanks for your support all these years and for this beautiful journey !
