The Social Rewind for November 28, 2016

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: We start with a birth. Check out this cool microscopic look, shared by ACL Staticide, at the process of a crystal being born.

Driver-less cars are one thing, but driver-less race cars?! TE Connectivity’s post presents an electric race car that doesn’t need a driver.

Puritan’s post examines an amazing study that shows only half of a chromosome is DNA.

A new study, shared by 3D Printing Industry, states that while consumers believe 3D-printed products have a higher perceived value, they were not ready to pay the extra cost for a 3D-printed object.

Laughing Squid’s post reveals that scientists are using metamaterials to create an invisibility cloak.

And we close out this week’s column with a blog post about our new Web chat option, which offers live customer service.

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.
