New Snapchat Update: Context Cards

Hi! Tanya with Influence PRX here!  When I tell people their digital presence is extremely important for their business I’m not kidding!  Yesterday’s Snapchat update is proof!

Snapchat just introduced Context Cards which offers information from partners like Uber, Lyft, OpenTable, and Foursquare.  Snapchat’s latest feature gives Snapchat users more information about the photos and videos shared by their friends and the people they follow, all while driving traffic to businesses like restaurants, Uber, Lift, and their other partners!

The new feature was launched yesterday and it lets Snapchat users swipe up on individual snaps to see an interactive pop-up display with information associated with that specific Snapchat Geofilter.  Depending on the snap’s tagged location, the Context Card can include anything from general information about a venue (like a hotel or restaurant) to user reviews, directions, and additional Snapchat posts from that location.

In addition, Snapchat’s Context Cards also pulls from information from their new partners like Foursquare, restaurant reservations services OpenTable and Resy, Uber and Lyft.  Snapchat plans to bring on more partners so they can continue to give their users more interactive tools.

“With Context Cards, Snaps have become the visual starting point for learning more about the world, empowering our community to get more information about anything that catches their eye,” the company said yesterday 10/10/2017.
