Elamin Abdelmahmoud is Buzzfeed's social media editor and q's online columnist. Every week, he brings us up to speed on the big headlines taking over the internet right now. This week, he joins host Tom Power to talk about social media, and whether it's having a negative effect on us.

Plus, Elamin and Tom agree to go social media free for one week (with conditions). Let us know on Twitter if you've ever done that or want to give it a try with us. And yes, we get the irony of talking about this on social media. @cbcradioq
