LinkedIn To Roll Out New SlideShare FeaturesBy: Chris Crum - August 20, 2014
LinkedIn announced that it’s giving all SlideShare users access to features like analytics, profile customization, video uploads, and private uploads. You won’t get all of this at once, however, as they’ll be rolling out one feature per month.
First up will apparently be the analytics offering.
“Analytics provides you with helpful insights that allow you to get to know who’s checking out your presentations, learn which sites are giving you the added boost, and measure and analyze engagement,” says LinkedIn’s Amit Sawhney. “You can find out who’s viewing your SlideShares, how they found your content — even where they’re located in the world.”
The profile customization will presumably be the next available feature (that is if the roll-outs follow the sequence of the announcements).
“Create a distinct brand identity with Profile Customization,” he continues. “You’ll be able to style your profile page with a customizable background image, organize your content so your uploads and favorite SlideShares appear on your profile, and curate the SlideShares that are most valuable to your audience.”
The private uploading feature will obviously enable you to share content without making it public. You can then publish it when it’s ready to go.
Videos, it would seem, will be the last of these features to roll out. Just in case the order of the feature roll-outs isn’t as presented, you may want to sign up for updates here.
