Create and embed presentations in your LinkedIn profile

You're now able to embed a Google Docs presentation in your LinkedIn profile, allowing you to enhance your professional profile with text, images, and even videos.

For those of you unfamiliar with LinkedIn, it's the world's largest online professional network. LinkedIn allows you to create a profile that showcases your skills and talents, and helps you find and connect with your trusted contacts and share ideas and opportunities.

Who might benefit from an embedded presentation in their profile? Graphic designers and photographers can showcase examples of their work or even their entire portfolios. Musicians and media producers can display performances and videos using embedded YouTube videos in their slides. But these are just a few ideas.

Our LinkedIn application was built on OpenSocial, an open standard for building social applications across the web, which means that in the future, it will be easy to run this app on any site that supports OpenSocial.

Add our app in LinkedIn to display your own Google Docs presentation in your profile.
