Snap is still accusing more and more revenue - with a 300 percent increase in the a year ago, coming out to $150 million this past quarter - but that's still behind expectations of $158 million. It also said that the company lost $2.31 per share, though most of that was due to expenses related to stock-based compensation. The company added more users this quarter than it did during the fourth quarter of 2016, when it grew by just 5 million DAUs.
Analysts from J.P. Morgan anticipated Snap's DAUs to increase to 169 million by the end of the first quarter. The company generated $0.90 with each user in Q1 of 2017. Earnings came in at $295 million, or 12 cents a share, while sales rose 32 percent to $1.18 billion, meeting consensus estimates of 12 cents a share on revenue of $1.15 billion.
Unfortunately for Snap, Instagram has 700 million monthly users, while Snapchat has 166 million daily users. Snapchat shares were down nearly 25% in after hours trading. Even though revenue had increased by almost 700% the previous year, the company's net losses also increased to the tune of over $500 million.

Facebook Inc had also plunged after posting results for the first time in 2012, but has since ensconced itself as a Wall Street darling by transforming the company into an advertising giant. Net additional users increased 54% worldwide since Q4 previous year, said Snap founder and CEO Evan Spiegel.
"We still have a lot of work to do but we are excited by the amount of progress we have made in such a short time", Spiegel said.
Of note is the fact that Snapchat's core feature - photos and video clips that disappear after 24 hours - has now been copied by both of Facebook's acquired social companies, Instagram and WhatsApp. "Just like how Google forced companies to develop their own search strategies, Snapchat is forcing competitors to develop a camera strategy", he added.
The slow user growth is not an insurmountable obstacle for Snapchat, but one thing is certain: any "inorganic" growth they exhibit will most likely be shadowed by Facebook, including acquiring other apps with key stand-out features.
