Maybe the social medias will be the path to widespread adoption of LN.
For example, if influencers create their own LN nodes for their followers to easily connect to it, this could spreads like fire. LN nodes need to be offered as an easy 'one-click' solution to the masses. I can see mobile operators offering LN node hosting services to their customers. As a matter of fact, any large consumer based business could start offering LN node hosting just in a similar way they all offer a credit card account. They could even offer bitcoin refill services. Most people would then be able to participate in the LN based economy without the need to ever go through an exchange.

I hope so :) I've started a LN powered social media platform. Doesn't cost anything to post, so new users can earn their first few Satoshi. I hope to have more non-Bitcoin content, but the users are obviously mostly crypto enthusiasts right now. It's a work in progress (open source), but you can check it out at www.zapread.com
