Part of the question I’d have, is do you mean on the Internet the whole time?

I’m on one for photography that started out life on Fidonet, moved to the Internet, and while it still has the maillist, is now sadly, mainly a Facebook group.

I know of a couple Role Playing Game lists that are definitely older than this list.  The one started in the early 90’s, on the Internet, the other in the 80’s on GEnie.  

These are simply examples I’m aware of.  It would also be interesting to know how many have evolved into either Facebook or Google groups.
