The Social Rewind for September 21, 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.

TE Connectivity’s post tells us that when diverse robots can talk to each other they are more efficient and economical. All arguing aside, it seemed to have worked for R2D2 and C3PO.
