The Social Rewind for October 26, 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: We love stories about technology being used to turn something bad into something good. Tektronix’ post looks at how harmful algal blooms are being turned into low-cost electrodes for sodium-ion batteries.

Puritan Medical’s post reports that, for the first time, scientists have determined age from DNA testing.

Last Wednesday saw thousands of posts related to Back to the Future Day. We chose Agilent Technologies’ because it examines what inventions that classic movie got right, what is in the works right now, and what will be possible in the near future.

And we close out this week’s column with our not-so-scary blog post about our scary good Bevco FREE casters promo.
