NEW YORK, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grandparents.com (OTCBB: GPCM), The Ultimate Resource for Grandparents™ and a premier social media website for people over 50, is pleased to announce that it now has over one million members. Growing by more than 600,000 members since March 2012, this innovative social platform is swiftly becoming the go-to resource for an increasingly media savvy generation.
Since going public in February 2012, Grandparents.com has become one of the fastest-growing online membership organizations - a trusted, life stage destination website for a new generation of active, involved grandparents and America's age 50+ demographic, who together represent a force of 120 million that control over 75% of the nation's wealth. This demographic is growing at twice the rate of the general population and, by 2020 (according to a 2011 MetLife "Report on America's Grandparents"), grandparents will represent a third of all adults in the US.
"We are extremely pleased to have attained such a significant number of members in such a short period of time," said Steve Leber, Chairman and Co-CEO. "Hitting the one-million member mark five months ahead of schedule is just the beginning for Grandparents.com. As we continue to expand our informative content and re-launch our Grand Social Network, new website and PhotoVideogram App on Grandparents Day, September 9, 2012, we anticipate continued growth and aim to have two million members by the end of this year. We thank all one million of our members who enjoy our content and product offerings and keep returning to visit us online."
