Sounds like a tourist area place- or do people really take that many pics? Like group ones?

Everybody takes picks anymore. Although you don't normally see it in more rural areas as much, but cities, yep.

In a nutshell, they found:
  • People stayed on the premises almost twice as long as ten years ago.
  • Photographing food.
  • Groups shots taken by the waiter.
  • Not picking up the menu for 10-20 minutes after being seated.
  • Sending food back more often for reheating.

Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

Doesn't have to be high-end food, either.

The last two because of people futzing with their phones instead of reading the menu or eating the food when it arrived.

Wonder if it would help the restaurant to have one or two dedicated IT people on staff to help people with their phones.

I picture some sour pickle faced nerd being technically correct that Craigslist isn't a blog.

Don't matter anyway, it's been reblogged enough places. Still not proof it's not bogus, but eh. Fun read.

Perfectly believable to me. People are way too attached to their electronic tethers.
