New LinkedIn profiles make it easier to add SlideShare presentations

December 18, 2012

We’ve been working on providing new and exciting ways to add SlideShare content to your LinkedIn profile. Previously this was done with the SlideShare App on LinkedIn, which we are discontinuing in favor of a simpler and easier way to add content. The new LinkedIn profiles will be rolled out during the next month to people around the world. Here’s how to use them.

If you were using the SlideShare App on LinkedIn
As part of the migration, all your existing SlideShare content currently displayed on your LinkedIn profile through the LinkedIn app will be transitioned to the new profile page. Once you opt in to the new LinkedIn profile page, you will see your SlideShare presentations are already there.

If you did not use the SlideShare App on LinkedIn
As part of the new LinkedIn profile, we will be rolling out a simplified experience for integrating rich media content like presentations, videos, and documents. This feature preview is currently available to a limited amount of users and we are rolling it out gradually to everyone in the new year.

View your analytics all in one place
As part of this transition, your LinkedIn profile will no longer display engagement analytics about your SlideShare content. However, you’ll still be able to visit for detailed engagement analytics on your Slideshare content.
