Great article. I once met a fellow writer whom I only knew as a blogger. I invited him to meet me at a caf in trendy east London. The intention was to show him the area after we'd had a bite and a coffee. He spent the whole time checking his phone for updates on his various social media profiles. After a while I made my excuses and left. :-(
