Young moviegoers want theaters to allow texting?! Can't Post

A survey has found that over 50% of people aged 18-34 believe that using social media while watching a movie in a theater would add to their experience.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/...-social-media-302921

Is it just me who finds this extremely annoying? I feel like I'm getting old, but at 23 that can't be the case! I'm not sure if the poll was strictly for USA residents, and I wonder whether the results would differ elsewhere. But I do have a few friends in the UK that simply cannot watch a film without a phone in their hand. It drives me mad! Mad

"...For if joyful is the fountain that rises in the sun, its springs are in the wells of sorrow unfathomed at the foundations of the Earth"
