LinkedIn has acquired professional content sharing platform SlideShare for $119 million in cash and stock
SlideShare is a sharing platform for business documents, videos and presentations. SlideShare lets
anyone share presentations and video and also serves as a social discovery platform for users to find
relevant content and connect with other members who share similar interests. The company also has a
huge enterprise following, and companies like IBM and others use the platform to curate content from all
of their employees and partners on a branded page.

integration with LinkedIn, and the two companies have compared their relationship to Chocolate and
