Well, almost a year after Snap's (SNAP) IPO, CEO Evan Spiegel finally gave his diehard investors a reason to pick up their Apple (AAPL) iPhones and take a celebratory seven-second selfie. For the first time ever, the social media app beat earnings expectations and sent its stock soaring. 

Here are the some quick stats from the report:

  • Snap's revenue was $285.7 million vs. estimates of $252.9 million
  • The company also grew revenue 72 percent year-over-year
  • Snap beat estimates when it came to global daily active users, with 187 million vs. 184.2 million
