Snapchat Geofilters – All you need to know

Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application to share photos and videos with friends.

What are Snapchat Geofilters?

Snapchat Geofilters are basically nice looking graphics that dress up a snap.  They are unique overlays for Snaps, much like digital stickers assembled into the application. Geofilters depend upon the location and change when the location changes. So, the Geofilters you see in one location will be different from the Geofilters you see in another.

Individual snapchatters can use Geofilters to celebrate all kinds of special events – birthdays, weddings, festivals, etc. Similarly, companies and businesses use them for corporate events and conferences.

Community Geofilters encourage artists and designers to make and submit Geofilters for their city, college, landmark, or any public location, but the use of any brand logos is prohibited.

On Demand Geofilters are used by businesses and individuals who can purchase them for their event, business, or a specific location. Use of brand logos and trademarks are allowed in On-Demand Geofilters.
