LinkedIn's SlideShare Goes Completely Free

LinkedIn's SlideShare Goes Completely Free | Using Linkedin Wisely | Scoop.it

Slideshare, a platform owned by LinkedIn for sharing presentations, documents, infographics and other files, is now completely free to use.


As TechCrunch notes, the optional Pro tiers that existed before have been stripped out and premium features, including analytics, profile customization and private uploads, are being opened up to all users.


New and existing “free” users won’t receive all these goodies straight away, however. SlideShare will be rolling out one new feature every month, starting in September. They haven’t announced the order, or when the roll-out will be completed, but presumably it’s been done to keep newcomers engaged....

Great News when this is completely rolled out.  The enhanced analytics will be real helpful.
