Do not !! join Panoramio - unless you want to join G+ too.
In the summer of 2013 Google introduced a so called "new design" and at the same time started disabling Panoramio with all kinds of bugs - most likely not to improve Panoramio but mainly in order to make Panoramio users move their photo-accounts to Google +.
Apparently Google has collected enough photos for Google Earth and therefore Panoramio users are no longer needed.
Terrible custumer support - very bad management - never ending problems with bugs for about 6 months now.
Many users are leaving Panoramio - some are joining flickr - which seems to be in the same sad state from what I read here - some have joined ipernity com.
In summary, I would not recommend Panoramio from Google to a friend.
