LinkedIn announced on Friday that SlideShare has a new way for users to extend the visibility and reach of their LinkedIn presence.

With one click, you can now upload a presentation, infographic, or video to your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn will ask new SlideShare users if they want to publish their content there, and it will ask existing users if they want to publish new content to their existing account.

"On LinkedIn, you can showcase your unique professional story by posting rich, visual content such as presentations and videos," says LinkedIn's John Loof. "Starting today, you can share that same content on SlideShare with just one click, extending the visibility and reach of your professional identity."

"Ever hear that old saying, 'A picture is worth a thousand words'? That’s especially true with presentations, where images have impact," he says. "Go for beautiful imagery and just enough wording to make your point. Ask yourself – or better yet, a friend or colleague you trust to be honest – if the images you’re including make sense and illustrate your points well. Tailor accordingly."

SlideShare gets 70 million monthly visitors, according to the company.
