Snapchat Filters – Low Battery And High Battery Snpchat Filter 

Snapchat offers a number of filters to its users. Some filters change the tint of the image changing it to an amber color, or to black and white. There are also Geo filters that represent a specific location that are submitted by other Snapchat users. I can go on a rant about all of the different styles and variations of filters, but in this article I will be discussing the low battery and high battery snapchat filters.

How to Get The Low Battery Snapchat Filter 

 Let’s kick things off by discussing the low battery snapchat filter. This filter becomes available when your mobile device’s battery level drops below ten percent. When your phone gets that low it is time to plug it in and let it get a fresh charge before you do any more snapping. The filter is similar to the battery life indicator on a mobile device. It shows a battery with a little bit of power left in it . The little bit of juice left is red to warn that the battery is almost dead. The interior of the battery is dark gray with a sad face on the side of it. I mean, who isn’t a little sad with an empty battery?
How to Get The Full Battery Snapchat Filter 

 Now for the more cheerful of the two battery level indicating filters. This is the full battery snapchat filter. This filter becomes available when a snapchat user’s battery level is at 90% or higher. As soon as your battery reaches 89% the filter disappears from the list of filters you have to choose from. This filter actually has a sillouette of a battery. The Interior of the battery sillouette is green. The green symbolizes that the battery is nearly full and ready to send some snaps. There is a white smiling face in the side of the battery showing you how happy your phone is to have a full tank.
These filters are great for showing your friends just how much battery life you have left. You can seek pity for having a low battery or brag about it being full. It is up to you.

How to Get on DJ Khaled’s Snapchat Story

  Millions of people across the country continue to view DJ Khaled’s Snapcjat stories daily. His story receives over two million views regularly. Khaled had been using this to his advantage, charging businesses to promote products such as Apple ciroc. To promote this product Khaled put the Ciroc in a cluster of bamboo and called it his Apple Ciroc tree. He was most likely paid to do this by the brand. He also promoted his own restaurant in Miami. As Khaled continues his two day road trip to Las Vegas he will continue to promote brands that pay his ransom. Khaled has also come across some fans while filming his key to success series. When greeted by fans he is more than happy to include them in his snaps. He loves his fans. You too could make it into one of his snaps. In the past he has posted snaps that give a shoutout to his fan base. He absolutely loves them. 

How to Get on DJ Khaled’s Snapchat Story

If you want to be a part of DJ Khaled’s Snapchat story yourself, you will need to catch him when he is not busy; preferably when he is filming for Snapchat. To get his attention just approach him and be nice. Tell him how big of a fan you are and ask to be in a Snapchat with him. Like I said he loves his fans and to be with them. Try to avoid waiting for his bus at a tour stop. Try to catch him at a restaurant he was recently at, or when he is pulled over on the side of the road preaching his keys or doing tour bus talk. Just be friendly and let him know you appreciate what he does.

How to Get a Shoutout From DJ Khaled

If you want DJ Khaled to give your Snapchat profile a shoutout, you will either need to pay pay big money, or become really close friends with the DJ. Khaled would be more than willing to give you a shoutout if you can pay the right money. He has been giving businesses products shootouts ever since he has amassed the large following. All I can say is good luck if you want a shoutout on Snapchat from DJ Khaled. 

  

Snow Globe Festival 2015 Snapchat Live Story 

  Snow Globe Festival 2015 Snapchat Live Story 

Last night another live snapchat story was posted on the story page of the Snapchat mobile app. The snow globe story contains a series of snaps from different users attending the annual snow globe music festival in South Lake Tahoe California. The festival is part expedition part music festival. Those who attend the festival must travel through thick snow to reach the preformances. There is also an igloo that serves as a party house for listeners. 

Where is The Snow Globe Music Festival?

The snow globe music festival is located in south Lake Taho in California. It is located in the mountains of Northern California. The area offers skiing and apparently is covered in snow this time of year. The live snaochat story shows people huddled in the snow as well as a skier performing a jump. The festival requires a trek through the snow to reach the event. This would be an interesting atmosphere for a music festival for sure. 

Check out the story in the Snapchat app if you haven’t already.

Snapchat Filters – Wendy’s Yum Four For Four New Years Filter

Snapchat Filters - Wendy's Yum Four For Four New Years FilterSnapchat Filters – Wendy’s Yum Four For Four New Years Filter

Another Snapchat filter was released late on December 29th. This filter is yet another sponsored filter that earned Snapchat some money as we head into the new year. I doubt this will be the last Sponsored filter of 2015 but it is going to be one of the last for sure. This sponsored filter is a promotion for the fast food chain Wendy’s. Just thinking about this filter is making my stomach rumble so lets go ahead and get into the overview of the filter.

Wendy’s Yum Four For Four New Years Filter Overview

The Wendy’s yum four for four new years filter is kind of a mouth full, no pun intended. This filter has multiple different parts that promote both the Wendy’s chain and the coming of a new year. First of all lets discuss the parts of the filter. This filter is different than most other Snapchat filters. This filter covers the entire left side of the frame. Starting with the background of the filter you will find a number of red and blue circles as well as small white 4’s. In front of the background you will find the Wendy’s logo in the bottom left corner. Above the logo there is a drink with a smiling face on the side with a straw wearing a blue New Years hat. Above the drink there are some french fries with a face that are blowing a New Years horn. Above the fries there is a bacon cheeseburger, who is also smiling,  wearing a birthday cone hat. Last but not least, above the cheeseburger there is a four piece nugget wearing a bow tie. All of these characters are just having a great time celebrating the New Year.

What do the 4s Mean on the Wendy’s Snapchat FIlter?

All of the characters in the Wendy’s Snapchat filter represent an item that is included in Wendy’s four for four value menu. The combo includes a small drink, a bacon cheeseburger, a small fry, and a four piece nugget. It is actually a great deal. After writing this I may just go get one for myself. This is just another example of how powerful the sponsored Snapchat filters really are.

Happy Snapping!

 

New York City New Years Snapchat Geo Filter Prediction

New York City New Years Snapchat Geo Filter PredictionNew York City New Years Snapchat Geo Filter

New Years is coming up soon and this is going to be a big one for Snapchat users across the country. More people will be documenting the first seconds of 2016 on Snapchat than ever before. In every city around the world there will be special Snapchat filters to mark the occasion. There will also be live stories that show different peoples perspectives of scenes around the world. The most popular of the scenes will arguably be New York City. The celebration in New York City is nationally televised and will be watched by millions of viewers around the world. It will also be featured on a Snapchat live story that will also be viewed by millions.

The New York New Years Snapchat Geo Filter Prediction

The New York New Years Snapchat Geo filter will most likely be made available to Snapchat users in New York the morning of New Years Eve. This is when use of the filter will begin to become popular. The use of the filter will steadily increase right up until the moment when the clock strikes midnight and the ball reaches the base of the tower. The New York New Years filter will likely be a part of thousands of New Yorker’s first snaps in the new year.

I predict the filter will have the new year as the main part of the filter with bold text. It could also have text that reads “happy new year from New York” or something similar. The filter could also feature some landmarks of NYC such as the statue of liberty or the empire state building; maybe even both. There could be multiple different filters for Snapchat users in NYC to use on their snaps celebrating the birth of a new year.

It is going to be up in the air until the day of the filter release. It will be a great holiday for snappers who enjoy seeing all the unique filters that Snapchat offers its users.

Add me by scanning my Snapcode below for travel images. Send me snaps of some of your favorite Snapchat filters when they get released on New Years!

DJ Khaled Tour Bus Talk on Snapchat – From Miami to Las Vegas

DJ Khaled Tour Bus Talk on Snapchat - From Miami to Las Vegas PredictionOverview of DJ Khaled Tour Bus Talk on Snapchat 

DJ Khaled will be going on tour December 29th. Khaled has been promoting his tour bus talks for quite a while now, using his “ride wit me filter”. He will be continuing his key to success series from his tour bus for two days starting December 29th and ending when he reaches his first tour stop in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has been talking up his two day non stop tour bus ride to Las Vegas, describing his upcoming tour bus talks. He has had talks such as Hammock talk and Golf Cart talk in the past. According to Khaled, the tour bus talk is going to outdo them all.

 DJ Khaled’s Trip From Miami, FL to Las Vegas, NV

DJ Khaled will be starting his road trip from Miami, Florida to Las Vegas, Nevada on December 29th. His road trip will last to days as he makes the 2,528 mile drive. The ride will take 37 hours of driving, probably even longer with all the traffic and the fact that he will be riding in a massive tour bus. He will not be driving the bus, however. There will be two drivers that will take turns driving. This will give DJ Khaled time to conduct his tour bus talks.

The tour bus talk is going to be more inspirational than any talk yet. Teaching us all how to live successful happy lives. He will tell his massive following steps they should take throughout the day to make it big. I actually find his talks extremely uplifting throughout the day. He will have over thirty seven hours to post snaps to his story helping us be successful. Tune in to DJ Khaled’s story tomorrow for the start tour bus talks on Snapchat.

Snapchat Filters – How to Get The DJ Khaled Ride Wit Me Filter on Snapchat

Snapchat Filters - How to Get The DJ Khaled Ride Wit Me Filter on Snapchat The DJ Khaled Ride Wit Me Through The Journey of More Success Filter 

Many followers of DJ Khaled’s keys to success saw him use a filter on December 28th. The filter was used on a number of the snaps he added to his story during elliptical talk that afternoon. The filter is a promotion of his tour bus ride which is going to have two drivers and be a two day non stop ride. He has been promoting his so called “tour bus talk” for the passed day or two so snappers will have that to look forward to as Khaled prepares for his tour.

 

DJ Khaled Ride Wit Me Through The Journey of More Success Filter Description 

The filter kind of reminds me of the DJ Khaled  Christmas filter that was so popular during that holiday. The cartoon representation of DJ Khaled has the same face as the cartoon from the Christmas filter. This time, however, he is not wearing his festive Christmas outfit. Instead he is wearing a red jacket with a white undershirt. He is also wearing some gold chains. The character is standing on top of a cartoon representation of his tour bus which is positioned in the bottom right hand corner of the filter. The tour bus is black white and gray and has three pairs of headphones, a DJ Khaled silhouette and text on the back that says “We the Best”. Just to the left and above the bus there is some red text that reads: “Through the journey of more success”. This text is a continuation of the text at the top center of the filter that says “Ride wit me”. Together the red text says “Ride with me through the journey of more success”. This is one of the many phrases that Khaled uses regularly in his Snapchat series, as he preaches the keys to success.

How To Get The DJ Khaled Ride Wit Me Through the Journey of More Success Filter on Snpachat

This filter was released on December 28th in the early afternoon. The filter can be seen on a number of DJ Khaled’s Snapchat story segments. However, nobody can quite find out how to get it on the app. So where did the DJ get it? I believe that Snapchat created a filter specifically for Khaled. So he could promote his tour bus talk even more. I don’t know exactly how they would do this or what they plan on getting out of it, but that is just my view. I may not be right but that is what makes the most sense right now.

If this filter goes public let me know by scanning my Snapcode below and sending me the filter. I really hope this filter goes public, I think it would be a lot of fun.

Snapchat Filters – New Years Day 2016 Snapchat Filter Prediction

Snapchat Filters - New Years Day 2016 Snapchat Filter PredictionSnapchat Filters – New Years Day 2016 Snapchat Filter Prediction

Filters are becoming increasingly popular in the Snapchat world. They are used for special occasions, holidays, and even for marketing. Plenty of businesses have been creating their own Geo filters to help promote brands. This is a genies move for businesses. They will let people do the marketing for them. When someone who is shopping at a store sends a snap to their friends with the Geo filter that promotes the store they are shopping at it is free advertising for that business. Well, it isn’t really free. Snapchat makes out pretty well with the deal as well. Snapchat charges businesses to create these promotional filters. The filters that are released this New Years Day will not be created to promote businesses. The New years Day filters will be just purely fun. Similar to the DJ Khaled filter released on Christmas.

New Years Day 2016 Snapchat Filter Prediction

  The filter that is released New Years Day 2016 on Snapchat will most likely be released on the morning of New Year”s Eve and if not then, soon before midnight. This will probably happen because if it is posted after midnight it won’t be very effective. People will wan to use the filter on snaps they send right at midnight. This filter will be very popular on the thousands of videos around the world of the clock striking midnight. For many snapchat users the New Years Day Snapchat filter will be the first filter they use and receive. There will likely be New Years Day filters from every major cities. I imagine there will be a variety of new years day live stories from the biggest cities in the world. The live stories will be a succession of the clock striking midnight around the world before the new year finally reaches the east coast of the united states; where the biggest new years party will be going on in New York. I imagine there will be a Snapchat live story from New York City. There just has to be, it is the biggest New Years celebration in the country. There will probably also be a Geo Filter for New Years in New York.

This New Years filter will most likely have the year 2016 in bold text. It will have either confetti, party novelties, or maybe some animals celebrating. It is really up in the air. What this filter will look like. I know there will be filters for all of the major cities around the world but what they look like will remain a question up until they are released. They could look like the DJ Khaled filter from Christmas. Serving as a recap of all the pop culture icons from 2015. We will see.

Snapchat Year in Review Time Capsule Idea

  Snappers this year have come up with a great idea you might want to try in 2016. It would be cool if Snapchat had a year in review option. A way to see snaps from throughout the past year. This is possible if you want to take the time to set it up. Here is how to do it. First you will set up a new Snapchat account other than your own. Then you will log into your primary account and add the account you made. Name it something like “your name year in review” Then throughout the year, send snaps to that account. By the end of the year you will be able to log into that account and see all of the snaps you sent yourself throughout the year. The first snaps you send should be of new years night as the year 2015 takes its last few breaths and 2016 is born. Use the New Years Day Snapchat filter to mark the occasion. Personally I will be trying this. It seems like a fun little idea.Happy Snapping!

Snapchat Filters – New Year’s Eve 2015 Snapchat Filter Prediction

Snapchat Filters - New Year's Eve 2015 Snapchat Filter Prediction Snapchat Filters – New Year’s Eve 2015 Snapchat Filter Prediction

We have seen some interesting filters from Snapchat this past year. Everything from fourth of July filters all the way up to the recent DJ Khaled Christmas 2015 filter. Filters have become increasingly popular on Snapchat, and for good reason. Snapchat users love filters because they allow them to spice up their everyday average snap. Corporations love Snapchat filters because it allows them to advertise to millions of people in a creative way. Snapchat loves filters because they charge these companies for the advertising. Filters will be used more and more often as time goes by. More companies will opt to use filters as advertising as apposed to more physical forms of advertising. This new years eve however, the motive of the most popular filters will not have the goal of profits. It will be for fun.

As the year of 2015 comes to a close millions of Snapchat users across the country will begin preparing for the celebration of the new year. They will be going to parties, ball drops, and all the while they will be documenting their night on Snapchat. Sending snaps to all their friends, and adding snaps to their stories. There will also be a filter available for these Snapchat users to add to their snaps as the clock strikes midnight. What will this filter look like? Will there be more than one? These questions can all be asked but we will not know the answer for sure until December 31st.

New Year’s Eve 2015 Snapchat Filter Prediction

I believe the Snapchat new year’s eve 2015 filter will be released by the morning of December 31st. Snappers all over the world will begin sending snaps using the filter as soon as it is released. It will continue to be used throughout the day right up until the year takes its final breath and we move into 2016. The new year’s eve filter will likely be a part of the first snaps people receive in 2016. I predict that there will be a filter that is also available that says something along the lines of “happy new years” that is released not long before midnight on December 31st so that when users upload snaps to their story they will have filters available to match the occasion.

The filter will likely feature either the year 2016 in bold text with confetti and some other typical new years items. Maybe hats or blow horns could also be a part of the new years eve filter. There is really no telling. There is always the question of will there be a filter similar to the DJ Khaled filter that was so popular around Christmas time? A filter that is kind of a remembrance of everything that has happened in the past year? The answer to this question is…maybe. It is possible that there could be another unique filter to remember everything that happened in 2015. All we can do is wait it out to know for sure what the new years eve Snapchat filter will bring to the table.
