The Social Rewind for August 25, 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’s column: What did people envision for the city of the future in 1925? Workrite Ergonomics shared one person’s predictions, which were pretty darn close to reality.

Ever try to sleep when you’re in the hospital? Fashion Seal HC shared this post about how hospital-instituted quiet hours may become the new norm.

Robots may not be allowed to physically harm a human being, but as this New Equipment Digest post points out, they can take your jobs.

A recent study predicts 68% of high-tech jobs could be taken by smart machines in the not-too-distant future. Is it time to rage against the machines or is this a classic case of robo-phobia?
