Any proofs for this?
OpenPGP (probably not targeted for the masses)
        => still okay and secure
X.509 (absolutely targeted for the masses)
        => inherently broken (unless of course one trusts the Mozilla
           CAs, e.g. turktrust and CNNIC O:-) )

XMPP (*intended* for the masses, but basically failed (actually, mostly
     thanks to the big players and greedy companies like wotzapp)
     => well, at least people have their freedom
Skype,Hangouts,Wotzapp (targeted for the masses, backed as such by the
                        big players)
                       => people completely surrender to the vendors and
                          their conditions (and don't these typically
                          even include that the vendor may do basically
                          anything he likes with the data, including
                          selling it?)
