Its popularity may cut into the growth of Match and eHarmony, whose Facebook programs have 72,712 and 8,607 average monthly users respectively. Snap had $3.9M in revenue in the first nine months, up 65%. One reason dating apps on Facebook are popular is that they give romance-seekers insight into potential partners through the social network's existing information, according to Darrell Lerner, Snap’s co-founder.
