Slideshare, the most effective way to share professional documents and presentations across the web, has just recently been acquired by Linkedin for a hefty sum of one hundred and eighteen million dollars. Was this a good move? The largest proffesional network buying out the largest ‘professional slide sharing’ network?
one statistic worth noting may in fact have Linkedin competitors thinking they should have jumped on the slide share band wagon a bit earlier. Last March alone, SlideShare saw a total of twenty nine million unique visitors.
LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner stated: “Presentations are one of the main ways in which professionals capture and share their experiences and knowledge, which in turn helps shape their professional identity.”
