4 years of SlideShare

Four years ago, on October 4th 2006, we had just launched a few hours ago and were trying to keep up with the avalanche of users joining SlideShare. We realized even in the first hours that SlideShare struck a chord with users – so many people joined immediately and started referring their friends.

SlideShare started as a side project in our previous company. To be honest, right in the beginning, we did not know that SlideShare would get to where it is today. We did not know that presentations on the web would become so popular or that SlideShare would become the way so many people share content on the web.

Today is even more special because we reached 40 million unique visitors last month.

4 years, 40 million visitors. Thanks to each of you who visits SlideShare and shares your content.

Here is to many more birthdays. Thank you for sharing!
