The Social Rewind for February 20, 2017

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you're missing a lot of good information?

"The Social Rewind," is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: Agilent Technologies’ post gives us another reason to quit eating fast food: fluorine (associated with cancer, developmental toxicity, immunotoxicity and other negative health effects) in the packaging.

Treston USA shared this very helpful compilation of the ten benefits of modular workbenches. Read this before you shop for new benches for your workspace.

In another post about user comfort, productivity, and efficiency, Leica Microsystems shared their blog about how to turn a microscope workplace ergonomic.

Wanna be a cleanroom superstar? Check out Valutek’s five things you should ALWAYS do before entering a cleanroom.

Sometimes we spotlight a post just because it’s really cool and awe-inspiring: This visual treat from Laughing Squid shows how The Slow Mo Guys combined colored powder and air bags to create beautiful exploding rainbows.

And we close out this week’s column with a post about our Transforming Technologies Free Shipping promo on Warmbier Walking Test Kits.

There you have it; another quick look at a few of last week's most interesting social media posts. We enjoy bringing you this weekly column and hope you liked reading the Social Rewind. We'd love it if you shared your interesting posts with us and if you would share this column with your friends and colleagues.
