When Zach Marks' parents barred him from Facebook after finding out he was using the site, the 11-year-old Florida resident decided to create his own social site tailored for children. GromSocial, the website that Marks launched with his siblings three months ago, has already gained 6,800 members around the globe, mainly due to word-of-mouth marketing. "It's amazing how this is all happening and taking off," said Marks' father, Darren, who is himself an entrepreneur and helped his son register GromSocial in March.
