Right now, you're reading this on some type of screen.

The way we consume information and interact with our friends, family and colleagues has undergone radical change as our lives become more intertwined with technology.

But at what price?

A short film on the positives of 'looking up' - urging people to switch off from a world of smartphones and social media - has, ironically, gone viral.

Millions of people have been posting the link on their Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, urging others to 'Look Up'.

But how many have actually joined this revolution against constant updates and checking in? Have you changed the way you interact with friends and family online and in person?

We want to hear how social media has changed your life - for better or worse. Have you decided to cancel your Facebook page or stepped away from your Twitter account?

Share your story of how you have 'looked up' from the screens in your life.
