MeetMe Completes Launch of Major Mobile Chat Features


Increase in Mobile Daily Active User Engagement Indicated by Early

MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET), the public market leader for social
discovery, today announced it has completed integration of real-time
components and photo-sharing in Chat, the most popular feature of the
company’s flagship mobile app on both iOS and Android.

MeetMe CEO Geoff Cook said, “Since we first launched ephemeral photos in
mobile Chat on April 21, we have seen overall photo posting volume
increase by 26%. Now approximately 100,000 ephemeral photos are being
shared each day. In addition, we believe that launching real-time
capability within Chat has driven increased engagement. In the last two
weeks, chats sent per day in our mobile apps increased 31% vs. the Q1
average, and screen views in mobile Chat increased 23% vs. the Q1

“We believe this increase in chat and photo engagement has also driven
increased daily active users (DAU),” added Mr. Cook. “In the week after
we launched ephemeral photos in mobile Chat, our mobile DAU averaged
approximately 843,000, an increase of 9% over the Q1 average.”

The Chat updates reflect the company’s strategy to drive growth in DAU
through a more engaging messaging platform. The new ephemeral
photo-sharing feature in Chat allows users to send transient photos that
disappear after 3-10 seconds of being viewed. Additional enhancements
include real-time typing indicators, real-time message-read status
indicators, and the automatic real-time addition of new messages within
conversations (where previously users had to refresh the conversation
manually). All of these upgrades were designed to make mobile Chat
faster, more usable, and ultimately more engaging.

“We’re thrilled that MeetMe members seem to have embraced these feature
upgrades,” said Cook. “Adding photos to mobile Chat was one of our most
requested features, and early data shows nearly one of every four photos
shared through MeetMe is now ephemeral and sent in mobile Chat. With
this upgrade completed, we believe the MeetMe app delivers a very strong
chat experience for meeting new people across both iPhone and Android.
We look forward to launching additional features and feature upgrades
this year intended to drive traffic to an engaging Chat platform.”
