NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: STVI) (or "SNAP" or the "Company"), owner of AYI.com, announced today that the number of active subscribers on AYI.com increased 2.5% during the month of September 2013, signifying the first monthly increase in active subscribers in 18 months (since March 2012).
SNAP's Chief Executive Officer Clifford Lerner commented, "We ended September 2013 with approximately 77,000 active subscribers, up from 75,000 at the end of August 2013.
