I am a member of quite a few groups there and own five. They offer a brilliant, and always improving service with far more functionality than Rootsweb. Unlike some, they discuss possible improvements with users in advance (on a group called "beta", which anyone can join), and do seriously consider users' suggestions for improvements. Many people, like me, would not want to make the move to Facebook or Google groups, which in any case both offer an inferior service. Also, unlike the two mentioned, they make no commercial use of users' personal information, and take privacy seriously.
