Who Are You on SlideShare?

Users are able to share presentation slide shows, documents and other PDFs on their websites or blogs with SlideShare, a slide hosting service that has taken social networking to another level. SlideShare’s features include the option to add audio commentary to presentations, organize presentations according to a variety of categories and use groups to create presentation collections. Furthermore, presentations can be public or private, and viewers have the ability to download the original file. Meanwhile, users can continue to grow their online professional network and share content with others who share similar interests.

Now SlideShare offers eight different types of accounts including ones for:

– companies, organizations and professional firms,
– advertising, marketing and public relations agencies,
– universities, schools and other educational institutions,
– professional speakers,
– event organizers,
– presentation design firms,
– and non-profit and government organizations.

If you don’t fit into any one of those categories, you can still use SlideShare’s default account setting, which is free and available to anyone.

Completed profiles help build branding and identity and also enable better networking among customers and other users. SlideShare is planning to add custom options to each type of account in the near future.
