Introducing the NEW & IMPROVED SlideShare app on Facebook (and check out our triad of Facebook, LinkedIn & SlideShare apps)

April 29, 2009

We're happy to announce the relaunch of the SlideShare app on Facebook. We have completely rebuilt it, integrated the latest Facebook changes and made it more useful.

To add SlideShare to your Facebook profile, go here.

You can create an account on the SlideShare Facebook app and link it to your regular account. How does that help? Well, once you do that, any presentations (or documents) you upload on SlideShare will instantly be available on Facebook or if you upload them on Facebook, they'll be available on SlideShare.

It doesn't end there, of course. If you've added the SlideShare app for LinkedIn and linked your SlideShare account there, your presentations will automatically be visible on LinkedIn too!

In fact we strongly recommend you link both your LinkedIn & Facebook accounts to your account. Once this happens, you have a HOLY TRIAD in place. Upload to any one- SlideShare, Facebook or LinkedIn and it will shows up instantly on all three. Isn't that really cool?

Using the new Facebook app is a real breeze! We've tried to keep the interface consistent across SlideShare, LinkedIn and Facebook, so if you've used our app before, it should be really easy to get started with it on Facebook.

With the SlideShare app on Facebook, you can

  • Upload your presentations and documents to SlideShare
  • Share them instantly with your friends by publishing to your home page
  • Comment on or favorite presentations by your friends
  • Add a SlideShare box to your profile to display your presentations

If you already had added the app to Facebook, you don't need to do anything, unless you want to link it to your SlideShare account.

Take a look at some of the screenshots below to see what you can do:

We'll be adding more features to the app over the next few weeks, so we'll be glad to hear any feedback from you or if you find any bugs. :)
