If I ask you what would be your reaction to see the snaps of your local people in the vast
social media app like Snapchat, the answer will be more or less same, and you may say that
to watch the snaps of the people of your local area is always sounds exciting. But when the
finger is pointed towards you the answer may change as well, as none of us like to show our
activities to our neighbors, hence you can put a full stop to your worries as the geo Filter
feature is not go by its name, in fact the feature is quite different.
What is Geofilter feature of Snapchat?
The developers of Snapchat revealed the fact about their new project, they said that they are
working on the Community based Geofilter feature and will be promoted in the Community
Geofilter site. You cannot send message to the people of your locality through it; it will just
showcase the tiny pictures at the topmost position of the messages-such as Vegas if you
are in that place. This update will be localized and you will too get Geofilters, but they are
exactly not same as they were supposed to be. These things are like stickers and will appear
What can the users do with the feature?
The users who are dreaming to make skins for the best buddies can now attempt so by
submitting the images to Snapchat and can make it complete with desired geographical
location. Designers and artists are inspired to utilize this tool to bring unique style to their
snap chat community. But you must remember that you will not get anything in return of
your employed effort, time and creativity. You can submit PNG files, Illustrator files and
Photoshoped files. But those images are needed to be unique and will be added to the image
assets after it is approved by the developers.
