We just relaunched our <a href="http://bit.ly/slideshare-facebook-app">Facebook App</a>--now when you publish on SlideShare you instantly publish on Facebook and vice versa. Throw in the SlideShare LinkedIn App and it's a social media bonanza.<br/><br/>Once you add the SlideShare apps on LinkedIn & Facebook, upload your presentation to one platform, it'll show on the other two. At SlideShare, we like to call this the 'Holy Triad' of professional social media.<br/><br/>As per tradition, we have a <a href="http://www.slideshare.net/AmitRanjan/meet-chris-or-meet-slideshare-on-facebook">presentation</a> to walk you through our new Facebook App. <a target="_blank" href="http://bit.ly/slideshare-facebook-app">Go here</a> to install SlideShare Facebook App, (Don't forget to become a fan!) and <a href="http://bit.ly/slideshare-linkedin-app">here</a> to install the SlideShare LinkedIn app.<br/><br/></font><font style="font-size: 11px; color: rgb(84, 95, 104); font-family: Verdana;"><br/></font><font style="border-bottom: 1px dashed rgb(127, 156, 186); font-weight: normal; font-size: 18px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: 'Arial'; letter-spacing: -1px;">Finally, some Interesting Press Releases</font><font style="font-size: 11px; color: rgb(84, 95, 104); font-family: Verdana;"><br/><br/>Do press releases make you yawn?
