Previously one of our favorite tools

We also have some pet peeves

Slideshare is useful for sharing presentations, PDFs and documents. It's not the only way to do this, but it's a good way and it's linked to LinkIn. You can upload your files, tag them, and make them available for embedding on your website or others. Transcripts of presentation will be indexed by search engines and show up in search results.

At last count 10 million presentations have been uploaded!

What we like about Slideshare

Creative Commons licensing - The default is 'all rights reserved' though we recommend some form of sharing with attribution. Bonus points for presentations which are licensed as attribution-sharealike.

Embedding - Makes it possible to share presentations on other sites

One Click Sharing - Easy to share presentations on Facebook, Twitter and Email

LinkedIn connection - Easy to share presentations on one's LinkedIn profile

Re-Uploading ...

Pet Peeves

Under language, you can only choose one language (I wish there were a bilingual English-Spanish option for some of my presentations)
Sometimes others post spam as comments. Besides keeping an eye on one's newsfeed, are there ways to moderate comments?
Why is it so difficult to set up hyperlinks? (How does one set up outbound clicks?)
Unable to edit URL
Unable to see final URL until publication
No way to manage how one's 'home page' is presented to the world
Would like to see something analogous to YouTube's Playlists


Re-Upload - Slideshare presentations can be edited and replaced. Tip: Post draft presentations online and solicit comments and feedback. Make the appropriate edits and re-upload. Let people know changes have been made and what the next steps are. Update the description with relevant links and key words. Double check that things are the way you want (for the time being) and share on the social web -- via LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and the rest.

Status: In October 2017 not offered choice of re-uploading

We're always looking for new ways to improve the SlideShare experience for our members. This sometimes means eliminating features to invest in others that offer greater value. As a part of this process, we are removing the ability to re-upload SlideShare files.
You will still be able delete your older SlideShare files and upload new presentations. However, once you delete a SlideShare file you will not be able to retain the file URL, or view the file analytics.

It is particularly irksome that this development comes with no warning.

What's particularly irksome is the lack of any warning. It is unclear whether this now a premium service.

Bonus points to creators if you ...
Allow Creative Commons licensing.
Add a relevant YouTube video to the presentation.

Bonus points to views if you
Share a Slideshare presentation (you do not have to be a Slideshare member to do this)

October 4 was the 10 year anniversary of Slideshare -- -- "the world's largest community for sharing presentations online."

Uploading Tips

Increase virality with a descriptive title
The response does not help at all in letting me know what was wrong with the presentation.
"Based on the error message you reported, our system has determined that the content you are attempting to upload violates our terms. Please understand that due to the measures set in place via our algorithms were are unable to complete your upload. Please review the SlideShare Community Guidelines:"
The presentation that I uploaded was original content, basically language flashcards of an educational nature. There is nothing violent nor pornographic nor exploitative.
How can I trust and recommend Slideshare if the blandest of presentations is knocked off your site due to your algorithms?


SlideShare is part of LinkedIn. Your continued use means you agree to our integrated LinkedIn
Terms of Service

Be Creative

Post your own documents and presentations online.

Be Generous

If you find a presentation you like, favorite it, add a comment. If you really like it, you can also tweet it, share it on your facebook wall, google+ it or embed the widget on your website.

Be Curious

Search a topic or place of interest

Bonus points if you have an account on Twitter and Google+. There are many good ways to weave the web. Example: if you have an account on Twitter, readers can tweet about your presentation and simultaneously direct people to your presentation and Twitter account. If you don't have a Twitter account, it's more difficult to signal your attention or direct others to you.

A few words about replacements

One of the things we like about Slideshare is that files can be replaced, meaning its possible to to publish a draft, solicit and incorporate feedback and make updates accordingly.

Love reading "Your new file is being processed on our servers. Your old file will be replaced once this new file has been successfully converted."

  • The previous presentation will continue to work till the file gets replaced successfully. If replacement fails, the previous version will be intact.
  • Existing comments, views, tags, favorites, embeds, URL, etc will be retained after replacement and will continue to work.
  • File replacement is a technically complex process. Please wait at least 30 minutes for your changes to reflect after you see the confirmation message. If you still can't see the updated file, clear your browser's cache and try again.
  • For troubleshooting, read the FAQs.

Questions and Answers
