Also, the more media (images/audio) you can add to your presentation, the more engaging it will be for your viewer and the better response you'll get from them. Admittedly two things I'm NOT doing very well in this presentation myself!
Following Slideshare also has a “follow” feature. Similar to Twitter, you can follow other Slideshare users and get their updates when they add new content to their accounts.
Following After you have some content on your profile to represent who you are, get to following people by searching for terms you're interested in and finding people uploading content on that subject. Being social isn't just a good thing to do but it increases your views, as well!
