SlideShare revamps home page to make it more engaging

Users will be able to like, share and save presentations right from the home page

SlideShare, a site for posting, sharing, viewing, rating and commenting primarily on business presentations, has given a makeover to its homepage.

The changes, which include larger, more visually appealing thumbnails of presentations' title pages, are designed to increase people's usage and engagement on the site.

"We want to make it easy to discover, fun to share and beautiful to present on SlideShare," said John Loof, an associate product manager at SlideShare.

Other new home page features include the ability for users to like, save and share presentations by clicking on their title page thumbnail images. A small photo of the presentation's author will also be part of the thumbnail title page.

SlideShare's home page features content picked by its editorial staff, and now those hand-selected presentations will be organized by topics including business, entertainment, technology, education and careers.

SlideShare also announced on Thursday that its members have now uploaded more than 15 million presentations and other documents to the site, and that the interface is now available in Portuguese.

Loof said the team is working on further integrating SlideShare with LinkedIn, which acquired SlideShare in March of 2012. It's currently possible for SlideShare members to log into the site using their LinkedIn account credentials.
