SlideShare gets a mention in the Financial Times

The Financial Times, one of the most widely read business and financial newspapers in the world carried a story on how “Companies woo investors with social websites.”

The story quoted a report as saying that “companies are increasingly turning to social media sites such as Wikipedia, YouTube and SlideShare to communicate with investors”

We’re thrilled not only to be covered by the FT, but also because the story confirms our long held gut feelings. The report went on to say that about half of the 150 largest companies in Europe put presentations on SlideShare, photos on Flickr and videos on YouTube. The report also said that most people looked beyond the corporate sites for information and the new user generated content sites were the first places they looked.

So, if you want to make that great first impression on your customers, there’s no better time to upload your presentations to SlideShare! :)
