I completely agree with David.
I personally discovered Linphone almost by chance after hours spent looking for an open-source alternative to Skype.
From my point of view,
Publicity + Better desktop GUI = great popularity improvement.

Oggetto: [Linphone-users] Linphone publicity?
I've seen a lot of grumbling amongst people on Facebook recently (I know, but when almost all of your friends have been assimilated, you eventually realise what else can you do yourself..) about concerns that Facebook is trying to move people over from the Facebook Messenger web service to the Facebook Messenger app, coupled with concerns about whether the app might be using the microphone to listen in at all times:
It seems that as concerns about personal privacy and the risks of ad-funded internet services are now finally starting to become better known, would Linphone not be in a potentially good position to gain some good publicity for itself as a multi-platform, and open alternative to proprietary messaging/videocall applications? If it was better known, and better used, I'm sure you could also see an increase in donations towards development as well.
At present, Linphone doesn't have a formal presence on Facebook, would someone at Linphone be able to spend even a small amount of time managing a Linphone Facebook page occasionally to help better publicise its existence? (Likewise Twitter: I don't do Twitter myself (there's a limit to how much time I can waste on the internet!), but the fact is that many people do.)
It would be really great to see open and secure solutions become more popular, but half the battle in doing so is just to let people know that you even exist!
