People using their Iphones or Samsungs don't want to think, they want to click it and install it and have it work. Not because they're dumb, but because they don't have an interest in these things. They want to talk to their friends and family easily and quickly, not debate the finer points of licensing and privacy. I don't know what the ANSWER to this is, I would prefer we use matrix or XMPP personally, but you know... I run my own synapse/prosody server. I don't think that makes me the norm.
