File: ow_plugins/groups/classes/event_handler.php
Function: public function onGroupUserJoin
Code responsible for action:

OW::getEventManager()->trigger(new OW_Event('feed.activity', array(
            'activityType' => 'groups-join',
            'activityId' => $userId,
            'entityId' => $group->id,
            'entityType' => GROUPS_BOL_Service::FEED_ENTITY_TYPE,
            'userId' => $userId,
            'pluginKey' => 'groups',
            'feedType' => 'groups',
            'feedId' => $group->id
        ), array(
            'groupId' => $group->id,
            'userId' => $userId,
            'groupUserId' => $groupUserId,

            'string' => array("key" => 'groups+user_join_activity_string'),
            'features' => array()

will work only for newly registered users. already generated newfeed content will not be deleted. you will need to clear data manually.
