SlideShare’s journey with LinkedIn: It began with wanting
to change how professionals shared knowledge
LinkedIn acquired SlideShare in
May 2012, when it became clear
that professionals were coming to
LinkedIn to share experiences and
knowledge with each other.
The LinkedIn team learned from the SlideShare team, product, and
community. SlideShare helped shape LinkedIn’s content experience
into what it is today.
Even after enabling a social
document sharing experience
on LinkedIn, it was clear there
was still unique value in
SlideShare and its communities.
SlideShare and Scribd are
coming together to be the
destination for some of the
world’s favorite content.
