One of the better features in Snapchat is the often goofy geofilters that pop up when you're making a snap from a specific location. Today, Snapchat's making it easy to make your own filters for special events. Provided you don't mind shelling out a few bucks, that is. The new template allows you to easily set up a filter for weddings, birthdays and other celebrations. If you want, you can also upload your own images, but the web tool makes it so that pretty much anyone can create a filter on the fly. Once you pick your design, you'll pick which dates you want the filter active, then outline an area where they will be in effect. If it's a small area the size of a city block or so, you can create your filter for $US5 ($7). It's a bit goofy, but could prove fun for parties and weddings.
