Online groups: is it still Yahoo vs Google?

I'm starting a Neighborhood Watch group for my block and I'd like to implement an online message board that people who are in NW group can join. I currently am a member of a bunch of Yahoo groups but I'm guessing the world has moved on and there's a better/newer/cooler service out there now. Is Google Groups better? (This from 2006
, is probably not so useful anymore) Is there something else that I, as boring middle-ager, don't know about?
I'm also looking into Next Door
but am having some technical difficutlies setting it up so I thought I'd see if there were other options in the mean time.
It should be easy to access and use, be mostly self-managed, and free or super cheap.
