Boston.com – Boston College, the MBTA’s B-Line, Cape Cod, and Martha’s Vineyard are among the places that can now boast the enviable status of having a personalized Snapchat geofilter.
Snapchat, the messaging app of quickly-disappearing photos, first unveiled geofilters in July. Those filters — essentially location-based illustrations that can be placed on top of photos taken in the app — could only be used for photos taken in Los Angeles and New York. By swiping right on a photo snapped in specific neighborhoods, users could put a drawing of the Manhattan skyline, Disneyland, Venice Beach, or some other nearby landmark on top of the image. It was a nice way to show friends your location on the limited space of your phone screen.
In early December, though, Snapchat opened up geofilters to the public to ask for submissions. Bay State Snapchat users now have a few illustrations to play with for their disappearing selfies, a mix of drawings from users and others made by Snapchat’s internal designers.
Now you can overlay a Cape Cod graphic onto your Snap Chat photos? Makes sense I guess, there’s no sexting like vacation sexting. Plus you have a built in excuse if things go south. “No, I didn’t send you an unsolicited dick pic, it’s called a Cape postcard, duh.”
“Greetings from lovely Cape Cod, wish you were here, the weather is beautiful, here’s my junk.” Rolls right off the tongue really.
P.S. Here’s the un-cropped version of the sample photo. It’s such a thinly veiled phallic symbol that if we were in Japan I would’ve had to pixelate the lighthouse.The Real Cape
