The Social Rewind for October 19, 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: Here’s some good lunchtime reading, posted by GelPro, to learn how to use your lunch break to re-energize yourself for the rest of the workday.

Creating software & landing men on the moon is impressive for anyone, let alone someone in their 20’s!
