Snap Inc. released its quarterly results for the first quarter of 2018, with a total business figure of $ 230.7 million for the first quarter of the year.

Over twelve months, Snap's total business figure jumped 54 percent – but revenues declined from the previous quarter, when it reached $ 286 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

CEO Evan Spiegel attributes the revenue loss to the company's decision to roll out a major overhaul of the application this quarter – by separating the user's content from the creator's content.
