Microsoft has released Social Share, a free plug-in for PowerPoint that lets you share your slides to Facebook and Twitter as images or video.
The tool lets you share individual slides as images and your entire presentation as a photo album.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
If you like, you can package your entire deck as a video. This keeps your transitions and other animations intact.
The plug-in also adds a pane to PowerPoint, where you can see comments people leave on your shared presentations without leaving the app.
In addition, Social Share automatically uploads your presentation to OneDrive so you can share a link to download the file.
Vidyaraman Sankaranarayanan, a senior program manager on the Wildfire team that built the tool notes:
If you’re in a conference, you could post your PowerPoint to Twitter and present to an audience and then you could look up the comments in the social activity pane and address them during the Q&A part of the session.
Social Share is the latest product to come out of Microsoft Garage, the company’s program for inventive employees to launch experimental projects.
