Show off your slideshows on Plaxo

April 30, 2008

The Plaxo team just released an update to their site. You can now show off your slideshows from SlideShare on your Plaxo feed, which is a great way to let your friends and colleagues know about new slideshows that you have created.

Here's a slideshow that shows how to do it.

Extra-geeky footnote: like many other integrations with our site, the Plaxo integration was done using our RSS feeds: no API authentication or complications required! RSS is a surprisingly powerful interface for making mashups like this, since we load up our rss feeds with all kinds of multimedia goodies (specifically thumbnails and embed codes for the slideshows in the feed).

See a live example here.
