The on-demand geofilters can cover any location between 1,800 square meters to 450,000 square meters.After getting approval from Snapchat in usually one business day, users get an access to a dashboard where you can check the total swipes, views, and number of users of your geofilters by others.

Geofilter feature comprised the 8% of the total Snapchat’s ad revenue in 2016, so coming up with the on-demand feature is a part of a monetization strategy of the company. Recently a winter- walker filter from HBO created a buzz among the Game of Thrones fans  which was added by the channel to promote season 7 of the series. In Spite of decreasing figures of the snapchat in terms of revenue and users, the platorm continues to holds a reputation among the top social networking sites.
