On December 1st of 2020, Scribd will manage SlideShare account and any content on SlideShare.
SlideShare has been part of LinkedIn for 8 years and has provided a unique value to its community of authors and creators. Recognizing LinkedIn’s focus on building a professional community for people to give and get help to grow in their careers, we believe Scribd is best positioned to maintain and grow SlideShare’s value to its 40 million content authors. As a digital library leader, Scribd is the destination for readers and authors to create and share vibrant, informative content. For this reason, we’re excited to see SlideShare and Scribd come together.LinkedIn
