Wait, what’s a Grom? Zach Marks, the creator of Grom Social and his family are surfers. A “grommet” or “grom” is surfer slang for a young surfer. At Grom Social, kids have the opportunity to create a profile, make friends, chat and share content; however, as you and your Grom navigate through the site, you’ll find that Grom Social is much more than just social networking. Grom is a social community with an extensive variety of original content and engaging features. This includes exclusive Grom TV videos, fun Grom games, interesting photos and thought provoking Fan Pages that range in topics from good digital citizenship and internet safety to entertainment, sports, creative DIY projects and much more.
Grom Social’s devotion to social responsibility, good digital citizenship and positive social interaction is unique to the world of kid’s social media. Keeping Groms safe online is our number one priority! Inappropriate content or behavior (photos, language, bullying, etc.) is identified by digital filters and our cast of Grom Helpers. Grom Helpers are real people that monitor the site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Exclusive to Grom Social is the Parent Portal, a tool available to parents and guardians which allows them to monitor and control all of their child’s activity on Grom Social. Parents can set privacy settings, examine chat histories and review and control who their child is friends with.
At Grom Social, kids connect, create and explore in a safe social network created By Kids For Kids!
