“The digital universe was not built with kids in mind so Grom Social was created to ensure that kids can enjoy the fun of social media in a safe, monitored and protected environment that invites parents to play an active role in their child’s experience,” explains Marks. “By bringing even more controls into the app itself, parents can access their child’s settings and gain even greater control in keeping kids safe online while raising good digital citizens.”

Grom Social offers kids under 13 all the popular social media features typically found in social apps for older kids and grown-ups — including recording and sharing videos, live commenting, hashtags, streaming video content, direct messaging, music and hundreds of hours of exclusive Grom TV content. The brainchild of Zach Marks, (now 21), Grom was created when Zach was 11 and his parents denied his pleas to have a social account, which routinely requires users to be at least 13 years old. With parental encouragement and family teamwork, the Marks Family created Grom – which debuted as an app in 2016 – to give kids a social networking experience all their own…while protecting them from the dangers typically associated with the internet.
