SoFurry Groups

Groups on SoFurry are a way for users who share a common interest to get together. Most groups are organized by interest, so rather than having to watch all the artists that draw works that fall into your interest you can simply join the group and see relevant content when an artist posts new material.

What makes using groups much simpler is that they break the cycle of new or unknown artists not being seen because no one is following them. It also allows existing prominent artists to join SoFurry and post works that are relevant to your tastes and interests without you having to be aware that they have even joined SoFurry!

Every group on SoFurry has it's own galleries for artwork, stories, music, journals as well as having private forums and chat rooms.
