According to a 16-page Nortel Whitepaper, "16% of people are 'hyperconnected' [and] that 16% is expected to balloon to over 40% in the coming years." Such people "use many more devices, channels, and tools then 'regular' people" and "they are generally always on, always connected and see this as a good thing." And it is, overall - provided you keep in mind that you control the technology and that you control the interaction (and sometimes this may mean unplugging for a bit, just to reassert yourself).
