Scribd acquires LinkedIn's presentation service SlideShare
Microsoft LinkedIn has announced that it is selling its presentation-sharing service SlideShare to Scribd. The terms of the deal remain undisclosed.
“Our acquisition of SlideShare is a major step towards creating the world’s largest digital library,” said Trip Adler, co-founder and CEO of Scribd. “Scribd has accumulated a unique collection of user-generated and professional content that we make available to our readers via personalised recommendations, and the addition of presentations from the SlideShare community advances our vision. It allows us to continue diversifying our offering while driving even more readers to the books, audiobooks, magazines, and other professionally published works in our digital library,” Scribd said in its blog post.
