In a series of focus groups,🐾 participants were first asked whether they believed that the fandom was getting better or worse. 71% of the sample believed that the fandom was getting better, while a small minority (4.2%) said that they felt the fandom was generally getting worse. Similarly, 56% of the sample said that they were getting increasingly more involved in the fandom, while 4% of furries indicated the opposite, that they were attempting to distance themselves from the fandom. These numbers largely coincide with other data on fan trajectory in the furry fandom.🐾
