#OTD Tuesday Morning, November 5, 2019 I started this listing of Corgi groups on Facebook I find worth joining or worthy of consideration for joining. Click this link for the easiest way to find corgi groups on Facebook. Please note that all links open a new tab in your web browser.
- Silly Corgis – This group, based in Humble Texas, was created by Magalie Cacho on October 8, 2015. Ivette Maggie Bruno is the lead Admin for this public group of 11,662 members (as of November 5). Because I manage so many Facebook groups, and this one is public, I will continue to monitor it for a while. The rules are pretty relaxed. Facebook pages can be shared and buy/sell offers can be posted.
- Welsh Pembroke Corgi – This public group based in Reno Nevada, was created on July 23, 2007 by Keith Schmidt. The creator’s name is not automatically credited. This is an indication that the creator has left the group or deleted their Facebook account. This public group of 13,861 members is led by a team of five admins. In this group, there can be NO buy/sell posts for corgis. However, corgi related items can be posted for sale under these terms: “Post an image of the items and description and then tell people to PM you for pricing”. More specifically, these types of posts can only be added as comments on Fridays under the Frappy Friday: Corgi Items For Sale post. It’s important to remember that no external links can be featured on the images or in the copy for the buy/sell posts. Be sure to check out the photos in this group often.
- Approving Corgis – This private group of 38,527 members was created on May 4, 2014 by Joann Mason. It is quite an active group, with an average of 30 posts per day. The group description indicates that it is NOT in direct competition with the Disapproving Corgis group but since that is the most visible element, it surely draws members from the popular Disapproving Corgis group, which is public.
- Disapproving Corgis – This public group of 410,533 members was created
on September 12, 2013 by Joann Mason and is run by a combination of 11 admins and moderators. The theme for this group is sharing photos of corgis with disapproving expressions; however, one browse of the photos section reveals expressions of all types. As of today, I have four friends in this group. No commercial postings are allowed in this group and every post must include a corgi image.
- Corgi Lovers – This private group of 27,622 members as of November 23, 2019, was created in 2016 by Tuấn Nguyễn. In the past 30 days over 1,100 posts were made in this group and almost 400 new members were added. This one has more restrictive rules for posting. I will continue to monitor this group before joining.
- Corgmopolitan – I’ve been a member of this secret group (9,538 members as of November 23, 2019) since 2016. It was switched from public to secret shortly after the group creator left. External links can be shared but content on those links must be set to public viewing.
- Corgiaholic – On November 23, 2019, I discovered this public group of 9,064 members. It was created on May 30, 2018 and is run by Internet Marketer Louis Tran who has an Amazon store. There were no published rules on the date of discovery. I’ve decided to monitor it for a while.
- All Things Corgi – This public group of 3,560 members as of November 18, 2019 was created on February 14, 2016. I will be watching this group more closely as I discovered I had one friend in this group already.
- iHeart Corgis – I was accepted into this private group in the early morning of December 7, 2019. At that time there were 21,699 members. This group was created on August 16, 2016. It is run by the iHeartDogs.com page which had 4,214,779 likes at the time the group was suggested to me. Sadly, the About page mentions group rules being in the Files section but the only document there pertains to service dogs.
- Corgi Nation – On December 19, 2019, Facebook suggested that I join this private corgi group established on March 15, 2014. At the time there were 27,477 members with over 1500 posts in the last 30 days. The group does not allow advertising or selling. Photos and videos of corgis are encouraged. I don’t have time to join today and won’t be able to handle more notifications until after the new year.
- Welsh Corgi Fluffy – I assume Facebook suggested this corgi group to me because I’ve mentioned in posts that King Arthur is a Fluffy. Posts are restricted to fluffy photos, videos, and commentary about fluffies. Product mentions are allowed. This public corgi group was created on December 30, 2008 by
Annemari Röman, one of four admins and moderators currently managing the group. As of December 24, 2019, there were 3,716 members. I will continue to monitor for now.
- Anything Corgi – This private group was suggested to me on March 28, 2020. In my browse-through I noted there were 7,732 members, with 233 of them joining in the last 30 days. The group was created by Steve Helmbock on November 7, 2017 and is run by Steve and two others. This one does not allow postings of deaths and strives to keep the postings positive.
- All things Corgi – Since announcing our Corgi Kids to the world, I’ve attracted some other corgi owners as new friends and naturally, Facebook suggests I join groups they are in. I discovered the All Things Corgi group on January 2, 2019. A public group established on Valentine’s Day 2016, it had 4,067 members when I came across it. The rules are pretty simple. I can even share my live videos in that one but I will hold off joining for now.
- Corgi Smiles – Early Sunday morning, January 12, 2020, I discovered this private corgi group of 26,924 members and quickly applied for membership. Started in 2015 by Lisa Marie Durkot, membership in this group had increased by 836 members in the past 30 days and there were already close to 30 posts for today. Lisa Marie and her Iziboo Durkot Facebook page are group admins also.
- Corgi Lovers Society– Tuesday evening, July 21, 2020, I discovered this public group of 31,402 members as of today, included four of my friends who own corgis. This group was created on December 7, 2018 under the name of Corgi Society. The group name was changed on March 24, 2020 to Corgi Lovers Society. It is owned by the Corgi Lovers Society page which lists itself as a corgi breeder.
