BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2017) - Grom Social Enterprises (OTCQB: GRMM) ("Grom" or the "Company"), a holding company for five wholly-owned operating subsidiaries, today announced that its Grom Social Inc. subsidiary had surpassed 6 million users. Grom Social, Inc. is a leading social networking community for kids between the ages of five and 16. In addition to its 6 million children users, Grom Social, Inc. has a nearly equivalent number of parent and guardian users, so that Grom Social, Inc.'s aggregate total number of users is approximately 12 million individuals.

"This is a momentous event in our Company's history," said Darren Marks, Grom's Chairman and CEO. "From a concept just five short years ago, we have grown into a true destination site for children and parents alike as the safest social networking site on the web. We believe our success is due to our relentless dedication to providing 'original content' while providing a positive, safe experience that allows kids to communicate on a global basis in an atmosphere that promotes fun, friendship and education."

Zach Marks, the 17 year old founder of Grom Social, says, "It is only fitting that we surpass this important milestone in October, which is National Bullying Prevention Month.

I am incredibly proud of the progress we have achieved, and I'm even more excited about our opportunity to expand Grom as the leading destination for kids to use social media in a safe and friendly way."
