On SlideShare, home is where the newsfeed is

September 9, 2011

If you are a registered SlideShare user, you now have your own SlideShare ‘home’ page containing your personalized newsfeed. Take a look by logging in to your SlideShare account. When you enter your name and password, you’ll be taken to your home page with the newsfeed. This newsfeed keeps you up to date on what your network is doing.

In the newsfeed you’ll see...

  • Notification of new uploads from people you follow.
  • Comments about the presentations of people you follow.
  • Find out when someone in your network follows someone new.
  • You can also see who has recently visited your profile (Tip: is your profile up to date?)
  • You can even see recent ‘featured’ presentations from the SlideShare home page

SlideShare newsfeed
When you upload a presentation, it will display in all of your followers’ newsfeeds! This will help make your presentations much more popular. Your network can then comment and make it a favorite.

See someone whose presentations you like? Follow them to get updates in your newsfeed whenever they upload a new presentation. Any time there is an update to your newsfeed, you'll see a red marker at the top left next to your user name. This lets you know that there is something new to check out.

Here are some things you can do right from your newsfeed...

  • Comment on a presentation.
  • Make a presentation a favorite.
  • View comments that people in your network make on other presentations.
  • Follow people without leaving your newsfeed.
  • Share what’s on your mind.
