New Plug- in: Social Share for PowerPoint
With the new plug- in “Social Share,” PowerPoint files can be shared as an album, graphic or video on Twitter and Facebook. The new app is published by Microsoft Garage, a team of Microsoft- Employees dedicated to develop various apps in their free time.
Published presentations can get commented on Twitter or Facebook and PowerPoint can immediately display them in your presentation. In this way you can get direct and interactive reactions from social media users without leaving your presentation.
Benefits of the Plug- in
Imagine you share your presentation on Facebook right before you’re giving a lecture. Comments you receive can be considered at the end of your presentation when you discuss your content with your audience, as in a question and answer period. By responding to feedback on social media the same amount as you do to feedback by your audience, you point out your appreciation of diverse opinions.
Furthermore, you will profit from traffic your presentation gets by being shared and liked – maybe you´ll even reach a new target group.
A lot of PowerPoint presentations use texts, pictures, videos and animations and are worth being presented to the general public. “Social Share” provides a great opportunity to share content on social media and get immediate feedback on your presentation.
However, you should be aware that if you want to integrate Facebook and Twitter comments in your presentation, you should be ready for emotionally intense discussions – especially, when your presentation contains a controversial topic.
