I pointed out the advantages of being able to post audio and images even before 
Dr. Mike did. I'm in total agreement about the advantages, new contacts and 
much more shared information and activity. The noise is minimal. I don't join 
more groups because I'm seeing enough as it is, with the notifications (which 
as has been noted, can be cut off).

But the "noise" on these groups' sites is kept to a strict minimum and I've made many useful contacts through them. As Mike says, the chief advantage is being able to post images and share audio/video clips. There's also an ARSC page, I might add. I'm finding that I'm spending 95% of my time on Facebook and only 5% on 78-L these days. Even that Kanadian Kurmudgeon Lennick has joined a few.
