Recently, a judge in Spalding County, Georgia, dismissed a claim to hold the social media company responsible for a car accident in which a woman was trying out Snapchat’s “speed filter.” The feature tracks how fast users are moving when they take photos, and the woman was attempting to drive 100 miles an hour to get a “speed filter” picture.
