• I’d never heard of Slideshare and I wasn’t aware that these platforms share across Twitter … awesome info. Thanks so much!

    • You are welcome Kathy – if you do any presentations it is worth being on Slideshare as it is a social network all of it’s own!

  • This is great information and advice Donna! I just recently started using SlideShare and uploading them to YouTube but didn’t realize the added value I’d get by sharing them on Twitter, etc. I am also doing more edutainment videos and will definitely use your suggestions! Thanks so much!

    • Glad you found it useful Evelyn. It is such a little thing to remember to share them to Twitter and Pinterest but once they are on there, the opportunity for others to share your content is huge! Especially when they stand out like they do. Let me know how you go with it!

    Great post, I didnt know about slideshare. I signed up to pininterest but not sure how to use it, best I go look.

    • Thanks Kate! Check out my resource page for some more articles on Pinterest….http://sociallysorted.com.au/resources/ and stay tuned for more coming on this blog! It’s actually quite simple and easy to use – with great opportunity for exposure and traffic! Have fun with it.

  • No I am not doing this, and yes I know I need to be! Thank you for the great post. I am bookmarking it to come back to tomorrow! I am excited about trying this out!

    • Cool! Always great to know that I can help someone find out something that helps them. It is such a simple little share too, so well worth the effort!

  • I have a slideshare account and have never thought about pinning this! Question for you, can you pin directly from slideshare or do you create an image and add in the slideshare link to pin it?

    • Hi Penney – Slideshare has the Pin it button on their platform next to the actual slideshow, so you are good to go with pinning from the actual presentation!

      • Thanks for the info. Will give it a try and see what happens 🙂

    Hi Donna – I followed a link from the ProBlogger Event in Australia, then landed on one of your pages and wowza! That was an hour ago! Been bouncing all over your social media – your Pinterest Boards are fabulous.

    A question, when you create infographics, where? I mean what site do you find best to create Infographics? Also I notice many infographics include some code for recreating it elsewhere (ProBlogger does this) and I wonder how that is done.

    Thanks and best to you from Carolan in St. Lou (US)

    • Hi Carolyn – thanks for your feedback about my blog. That’s great! We actually create our own infographics and create infographics for other companies and bloggers. The code is called an embed code and there are a number of plug ins that create one or you can get a coder to do it. Hope that helps and thanks for stopping by!

        Thanks Donna. I’ve found a few sources of software for creating infographics and played with one for hours the other night. Yes, the embedded code is what I meant, but I have yet to figure that out, never thought to search plugins. Will do.
