 Half of Britons Access Facebook or Twitter During Meals With Their Partners

Underlining the obsession that people have with social media, a new study in Britain has found that nearly half of the people tend to check their Facebook or Twitter accounts and chat with their friends even when eating with their partner.

A whopping 53 percent said they used their smartphones during a cosy dinner with their other half. It was also found 66 percent cannot resist checking their Facebook accounts for updates during a dinner, The Sun reported.

The poll also found a third admitting being so addicted to Twitter that they will even check the site throughout the evening. The most popular digital activities include posting pictures, updating a status, and "checking in" to allow pals to see where they were dining.

Amazingly, 20 percent of Britons say they would even use social networking sites during a first date.

The survey conducted for Currys and PC World also found women more likely than men to use social networks during meals. But they also became more frustrated if their partner ignored them to use Facebook or Twitter.

Sixty-five percent said they found it a turn-off if their partner could not put down their phone or tablet computer. But just a third of men said it would annoy them.
