Today we take a look at SlideShare, an enormous source of knowledge, and a great tool for both finding and sharing information.
SlideShare is a slide hosting service that you can use to easily upload and share presentations, infographics, documents, and videos. In addition to making slideshow presentations viewable from within your browser, SlideShare also provides analytics, so that you can understand how your viewers are finding your content. Acquired by LinkedIn in 2012, SlideShare makes it easy to connect your Slideshare account to LinkedIn, as well as Facebook and Google+.
With over 18 million uploads, searching for content in SlideShare can be a bit overwhelming, but users have the option to search or to explore by topic, with topics such as Environment, Science, Software, and even Presentations & Public Speaking. SlideShare emphasizes the value of content that is visually interesting and well-designed, to make it more engaging and easier to learn from than a traditional document with lots of text.
