Snapchat just made tagging places a lot more useful

Timothy J. Seppala

More and more places are getting their own Snapchat location filters, but what good are they? Well, now they link to further information about where your pals are sending evaporating updates from. The ephemeral photo app i calling them Context Cards. The video filled with very attractive twentysomethings below shows restaurant reviews from Trip Advisor, how much it'll take to get to a destination either in your own car or via Lyft or Uber and will add your location to a map, Foursquare style. It look like you can even make hotel reservations without leaving Snapchat, too. All based on the location filter you pick.
