I’m testing docstoc v slideshare at the moment, and whether they can be posted to blogs.
Both these applications are social media platforms for sharing documents. Basically, like Youtube for documents. Docstoc is geared more towards professionals, whereas slideshare is more towards general powerpoint slide sharing. Docstoc contains legal precedents, business agreements, presentations. Slideshare contains slides on just about anything. Both platforms allow you to post up .ppt, .pdf, word, etc..
So here goes my test for embedding slideshare:
Update: It works. So you can embed, you just have to do it slightly differently. Follow these instructions and click on the words “customize” to get a special wordpress HTML code.
Docstoc looks like a different beast. I’ll have to figure out how to embed that. This guy could do it. I think its a security issue, that’s why you can’t embed stuff and you need special wordpress code.
