The Social Rewind for October 27, 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 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, well, everyone’s talking about it…so here’s a Fashion Seal HC post about the top 5 basic things you need to know about Ebola.

Mashable’s post about a Google executive’s record-breaking space jump had us wondering if this was just an extreme answer to, “I’m Feeling Lucky.”

This throwback photo, shared by Laboratory Equipment magazine, brought us back to cutting-edge computing in 1983. The sweater was not cutting-edge fashion.

Laughing Squid knows that videos of kids tasting and reacting to anything are just plain funny. This post confronts them with the dreaded Brussels sprouts. Yuuuuccckkkk!!!!

MAKE Magazine’s post basically comes down to this: Got a 3D printer? Love Halloween? Get to printing!

And we close out this week’s column with our post comparing the specs of a Commodore 64 and a modern iPhone and how far technology has advanced in our three decades of existence.

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.

A QUICK THANK YOU
Our Social Rewind column recently passed its one-year anniversary. Thank you for reading it and for your comments and suggestions. We enjoy bringing you this fun and informative column each week. We hope you’ll keep on reading and enjoying it every Monday.
