Over the past few years, SlideShare and LinkedIn have been working closely together to help professionals be more effective and productive through the content they create and share on LinkedIn. I’ve personally been a huge fan of SlideShare and am thrilled to have such a great, skilled team joining the LinkedIn family.
This acquisition means good things to professionals everywhere. Presentations are a core component of how professionals define and brand their identity. This deal enables professionals to discover people through content, and content through people. We’re excited to figure out the best ways our offerings will work together to help professionals around the world be more productive and successful.
