WATCH: A class are challenged to see how much they would miss their gadgets if they were taken away

Scroll Free September is what it's being called, but do you think you could give up social media for a whole month?

It's the idea of one charity, the Royal Public Health Society, who believe logging off could help you sleep better, feel better and help you spend quality time with the people around you.

The campaign's saying social media isn't all bad, but is challenging phone addicts to give up, or cut down on, their use of personal social media accounts.

Do you think it's a good idea or not?

How long would you last for - a whole month or would you struggle after a couple of days?

And what about the other people in your family or your friends? Would you like it if they cut down their social media use? Let us know!

    I have never really thought about using social media but I prefer when you go somewhere to speak face to face, rather than your head frequently looking down to the screen.I don't think it is a problem using social media, but for the people who have social media accounts, don't use it constantly!!!
    Make contact with reality. Im not trying to be mean or anything its just better without social media😒

    I never use social media. I think it is far better to interact with people face to face, and stop all the miscommunication, insults and cyber bullying that come with social media.
