Snapchat is a wildly popular social media app that recently surpassed Twitter in daily usage. Geofilters are just one of Snapchat's many features. You may have seen the app's facial mapping ability which allows users to paste all kinds of silly faces over their own. Including the cute and slobbery cartoon dog face. Facial mapping is awesome and so are geofilters, but they work a little differently.
Geofilters act as a sort of digital sticker only accessable in specific locations. Using GPS, the app automatically displays graphics associated with a Snapchat user's geographic position. Businesses can pay to upload their own digital graphics or citizens can design a filter for the community. The geofilters we've created are available for anyone to use on Snapchat, but they are exclusively available in the downtown area of Longview. So, come visit us and take some snaps along the way!
