Over half of UK smartphone users have admitted to using their phones to check Facebook or Twitter during a romantic meal with their partner. 

A survey conducted by Curry's and PC World found that 53 per cent of respondents admitting to contacting up to 10 friends during a romantic meal and 65 per cent checking their social media updates generally on theit phones in general when out for a meal. 

A fifth also admitted that they would use social networking during a first date. 

66 percent said they would check Facebook during a meal, while a third said they would use Twitter through out the evening for updates. 

Posting pictures, using Check In and updating their status were the most popular activities, while woman were found to be more likely to use social media during a meal than men, although they were also found to be more likely to become frustrated should their partner be using social media instead of communicating with them. 

Curry's spokesperson Ben Lovett said: “As our survey shows, our views on technology use are changing.

“It’s interesting to see the majority are now positive about the use of social media."
