Share and Discover the Visual Web with Pinterest and SlideShare

Now Pinterest, the virtual pinboard, works with SlideShare!


Pinterest optimization for SlideShare presentations provides a fun new way to share and discover the visual web. We’ve noticed lots of SlideShare users Pinning presentations. Now slides are captured as larger images with attribution for authors. And when people browse Pinterest and discover SlideShare content, they can immediately engage in embedded content.

We look forward to the collections of visual content on SlideShare that people can share and discover with Pinterest. What are you going to pin to your board?

    I can’t make this work. I need better instructions.

    This is a cool idea. I tried to pin a SlideShare before but I sure will from now on. Thanks.

    It will be far better if I can pin that slide by just clicking a button, just like ‘Like’ or ‘+1′.

    To Harriete:
    First, from http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/ ,
    add the Pin it button to your Bookmarks bar,

    Then open the presentation and select the Pin it button on the bookmarks bar, then you can add descriptions etc.

    It works great!

    Says “format not supported” when I go to pin a slideshare document!

    To get it to work I had to pin my uploads section instead of an individual slideshare document and pick the specific slideshare document to pin. :)

    I just don’t understand how to pin my SlideShare presentations.
    I have tried everyone’s suggestions….nothing.

    There should be a tutorial with clear instructions and large imags.
    Frustrating.
