Boca Raton, FL - (NewMediaWire) - March 30, 2020 - Grom Social Enterprises (OTCQB: GRMM) ("Grom" or the "Company"), is a leading social media platform and original content provider for children between the ages of 5 and 16
Covid-19 has upended the world, and Grom wants parents to know that we are here to support them. No matter what happens, we will continue to provide a safe and secure environment for children to virtually learn, socialize, and explore on our Grom Social app.
The Grom Social app gives kids the ability to be social with other kids from around the world while allowing families to keep tight to the recommended social distancing standards. On our app, kids can post videos, watch exclusive content and kid-friendly videos, chat with other kids, comment, like, view other posts, make friends, and express themselves creatively with video filters and doodles.
Additionally, our Grom Social app teaches kids online safety and digital citizenship, combining fun and learning in one safe and secure, 24/7 monitored platform. So, when you are home, and the stress of the world is creeping into your house, we are here for you. Let your children be social with others, and know we care about their safety as much as you do! What’s more, you can follow them on your Free MamaBear parenting app.
Recent concerns in the news highlight the Grom difference:
The Kids Internet Design and Safety (KIDS) Act was recently introduced by Sens. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT); if approved, the bill would force companies like YouTube and TikTok to completely change how they treat children’s content on their platforms. Everything from ads, app design, and some kinds of harmful content would see new limitations when a child under the age of 16 uses the platform (THE VERGE 3/5/2020).
Google Play, the repository for Android apps, has once again been caught hosting fraudulent and potentially malicious apps, with the discovery of more than 56 apps—many of them for children—that were installed on almost 1.7 million devices (arsTECHNICA 3/24/20).
We not only provide this opportunity for children to socialize in a safe COPPA-compliant environment on our app but, with our Grom Educational Services subsidiary, we provide web-filtering for schools. Our NetSpective WebFilter can protect your children on and off-campus via remote log on agents on school distributed devices.
Grom Social and our subsidiaries have put the safety and security of kids at the forefront since our inception. No matter what happens, we will continue to provide a safe and secure environment for children via our Netspective WebFilter and through our Grom Social App, allowing kids to virtually learn, socialize, and explore the world safely from their home.
