The producers of Forbes Living TV are excited to announce they are working on an upcoming segment on "Fun and Educational Social Websites for Kids" as a part of their “Parenting in Today's Digital World” series. The half-hour talk show is hosted by Forbes Riley, an author, entrepreneur, award-winning TV host in the D2C industry, and one of the nation’s leading health and wellness experts.

After being kicked off Facebook twice by his parents, 12-year-old Zach Marks dreamed of creating a social media alternative for kids. Soon after, Zach—along with his brothers, sister, and friends of the family—developed the platform and brought the site and its various characters to life. As the first and only social site created by kids for kids, Grom Social is a safe, educational, fun, and highly interactive digital social networking platform. The site has many cool features for kids that help them connect with other friends, chat, share photos, and post interesting stories. Users can also make their own Gromatar, watch funny videos, play games, and join group discussions. Recently, the company launched a fun and educational 3D video game called Solar Skate in the iOS app store.

“I’m a big fan of Forbes Living, so having the opportunity to be on the show is amazing,” said Marks, now 14. “I really like the way Forbes Living highlights people who invented things that could change peoples’ lives.”
