LinkedIn’s Slideshare Gets Infographics

LinkedIn announced on Thursday that it has launched a new player on Slideshare specifically for infographics.

“Though we have hosted infographics in the past, our new player optimizes the viewing experience of the increasingly important content type,” explains LinkedIn’s Arpit Dhariwal. “Like all SlideShares, a viewer can easily share infographics on social channels and embed them on other sites. Uploaders can see how many views, downloads and embeds their infographics have garnered.”

The player automatically detects infographics when they’re uploaded. It also includes it in the infographic directory. When you upload one, make sure you upload the file as a one-page PDF.

They can be uploaded here.

LinkedIn acquired Slideshare last year for about $118.75 million. Earlier this year, they addednew tracking analytics to the product.
