The Social Rewind for February 16, 2015

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, are you ready to live forever…online? Workrite Ergonomics shared this post about what life will be like in 2064.

Turn your head and type “cough?” TE Connectivity shared this Wired UK post about how virtual reality and sensors could make virtual healthcare a reality.

ASSEMBLY Magazine shared this USA Today piece that touches on the impact of more and more robots coming to U.S. factories over the next decade. How will the efficiency and lower operating costs affect the U.S. workforce?

This post by Laughing Squid shows global maps of the extensive, complicated system of undersea fiber-optic cables that power 99% of the world’s Internet traffic. Whew! And we get upset just when we have to switch out a cable to our router.

With a look toward this past Saturday’s Valentine’s Day holiday, 3D Printing Industry posted about this “Love is in the air” figurine that they chose as their 3D printable of the week.

And we close out this week’s column with our post of our new blog about EasyBraid’s Buy 4, Get 1 FREE promo for their EB9000S Soldering Station.

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.
