A new study has revealed that 84 percent people eavesdrop on other's conversations on public transportation.

Research by O2 has revealed that 40 percent of people then reveal the details on Facebook and Twitter, the Independent reported.

While 74 percent then gossip with their friends about the overheard conversation and 6 percent actually enjoy having their calls overhead.

Just over a third of us are apparently willing to reveal details of an important business deal, 17 percent talk about relationship breakups, and 13 percent of overheard conversations are about intimate details of our personal lives.

Teenagers are found to be the worst group for talking loudly on their phone, followed by businessmen and then the slightly too intoxicated.
