SNAP Interactive Nearly Triples Quarterly Net Income, Grows Quarterly Revenue 63%

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - SNAP Interactive, Inc. ("SNAP" or the "Company") (OTCBB: STVI), a leading provider of online dating applications for social networking websites, today announced record operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2008.

Financial Highlights, as Compared to Last Quarter (the Quarter ended June 30, 2008)

--  Revenue: $871,324, as compared to $533,257 -- a 63% increase
--  Net Income: $410,283, as compared to $144,862 -- a 183% increase
--  Earnings per Share (EPS): $0.04, as compared to $0.01
    

(A comprehensive description of results follows below.)

"To put it simply, SNAP is already profitable and we have grown our revenue for 5 consecutive quarters -- despite an early focus on growth ahead of monetization. We nearly tripled quarterly net income in the third quarter by virtue of increasing traffic to our existing applications and the advertising programs built within," stated SNAP President and CEO Clifford Lerner. "We also began offering paid premium features through our applications and look forward to expanding that revenue driver in the future. We have long believed that developing a critical mass user base was Priority #1 for a dating application; having now accomplished that with more than 16 Million total users we can turn our attention to new and inventive revenue driving strategies, evolving not only our own business model but the entire Social Network Application industry landscape. We are particularly excited about the expansion potential of the mobile device opportunity.

"We are very proud of the significant milestones we have achieved to date, and we believe that the next twelve months will offer new and exciting opportunities, both for SNAP and the greater space we are helping to define."
