L3: Depends on when she was texting and how much. If she was texting at dinner or while you were doing an activity together, it's rude. If she was texting while you were reading novels on beach chairs, it's fine. The expectation should be polite attention during social parts of the trip, not 5 days of complete attention.
Another thing is people's different objectives with a vacation. Some people(maybe LW) view it as getting away from their real life and have no desire to connect back to it in any way while on vacation.

Some people view it as a vacation from devices and gadgets.

Others (like me) have no desire to disconnect. A vacation, to me, means a vacation from work. 100% leisure time. Sitting by the pool playing on the phone/tablet is just as relaxing as reading a magazine/book.

LW1 - i'd ahve issues with someone posting a photo of me when its me and the other person hangnig out, but if its at a party, i kinda figure all bets are off on maintaining that privacy. i'm on twitter & linkedin, and thats it. my neices are horrified (but mostly over it) that we're not on facebook. i'm horrified that the older one got on linkedin, asked months later what it's all aobut and coudln't delete her account fast enough...

1. This is the kind of stuff you have time to dwell on?

2. Set a deadline for him to get a place of his own. That is the best motivator.

3. Not enough information. Not important.
