The Social Rewind for August 18, 2014

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 blog digest of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows some 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, TE Connectivity posted this humorous look at the real lives of engineers. Sounds like a reality TV hit in the making.

Brains and beauty. Celebrity and scholar. Agilent Technologies’ post looks at the famous actress Hedy Lamarr and her invention that paved the way for wireless communications.

We love these Throwback Thursday posts! The National Institute of Standards and Technology posted about a hosiery testing machine they created in 1938 for the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.


But what do the robots think? Robot Magazine posted about Clearpath Robotics' pledge not to build autonomous lethal robots.


Google+ shared this collection of touching tributes in memory of Robin Williams.


And we close out this week’s column with our quick post about the Great Blackout of 2003.


There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We hope you enjoyed this week’s Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared other interesting blog posts with us. Keep on reading! We’re look forward to continuing The Social Rewind through 2014. This is an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 30th anniversary. Keep your eyes open for new features, promotions, interviews, and more. See you next week!
