Grom Social, Inc
Grom Social is a safe social networking site created by Zach Marks when he was 11 years old. His brainstorm came after being kicked off Facebook because his parents told him it was not appropriate for kids. He decided to make a social network for kids that was safe. The site launched in January of 2013 and has grown to over two million members. Grom Social has attracted the attention of kids between the ages of 5 and 15 worldwide.
Zach and his family run the business with the help of a full time staff of cast members that monitor the site and the kids’ activity in real time. Grom Social teaches social responsibility and encourages kids at a young age to be good digital citizens. In addition to the “safe” feature of the site kids can create, play games, chat and learn about all types of trending topics. Parents are able to monitor all their child’s activity on the site in the unique feature we call the “parent portal.”
