SAN FRANCISCO -- December 11, 2012

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time
operational intelligence, today announced that Snap Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB:
STVI), a leading social application developer, is utilizing Splunk software to
foster key business decisions and quickly uncover insights into user behavior
and engagement. With Splunk software, Snap Interactive can make key decisions
faster and better engage its users.

“SNAP Interactive has well over a billion data points from its users, and with
Splunk software we can more easily analyze and react to our data in
real-time,” said Clifford Lerner, CEO, SNAP Interactive. “When we began using
Splunk Enterprise, we quickly realized the benefits and additional value of
having a real-time analytics platform integrated with our key business data.
With the recent re-launch of our flagship product AreYouInterested.com, Splunk
provides real-time insights into key business metrics, enabling us to better
understand the behavior of our millions of users and making it much easier to
find important relationships across different countries, cities and
demographics.”

SNAP’s product teams test new features with a subset of users as often as 10
to 20 times per day. Utilizing dashboards within Splunk software, SNAP’s
development team reports that it can see in real-time increases in engagement
and exactly how different A/B tests are performing. This new environment
enables SNAP Interactive to iterate more quickly – ultimately benefiting users
with an improved, more engaging product.

In addition, SNAP Interactive uses Splunk software to analyze reaction to the
millions of emails that AreYouInterested.com generates each day. Splunk
software has provided SNAP with greater insight into the emails that customers
find most engaging and has allowed the company to make significant
improvements to email deliverability. This real-time view has also helped SNAP
protect its reputation and brand by avoiding having its emails incorrectly
blacklisted as spam, which naturally can have a negative impact on any
business.

“The ability to use Splunk to quickly drill down and see any anomalies in
email sending patterns or deliverability has already generated returns well in
excess of the cost of the software,” said Geoffrey Brookins, Vice President of
Engineering at SNAP Interactive.

“Splunk is an extremely powerful platform that gives us views into complex
data sets in a way that was previously very complicated and labor intensive,”
said Jon D. Pedersen, Sr., SNAP Interactive’s CFO. “Having easier access to
such a wide range of data across key business metrics has increased our
ability to dig deeper into our data and improve the accuracy of our financial
decision-making."

“SNAP’s story is another great model for Splunk customers on how to discover
more value from their machine data,” said Steve Sommer, chief marketing
officer, Splunk. “SNAP embraced the Splunk platform with its innovative
development testing program, and took it a step further by incorporating
business data with IT data. Now, Splunk software provides views of SNAP’s data
for people across the organization, from development and product teams to
finance and executives, enabling SNAP to provide a better product for their
customers. Organizations that unify and analyze IT and business data together
will enjoy operational intelligence across the enterprise, faster
decision-making and a significant return on investment.”
