Slideshare is the most popular place to share presentation slides. You can find presentations on a wide variety of topics as well as share your own presentations. Uploading your slides enables people to revisit them after the actual presentation, and allows those that could not attend the opportunity to view your presntation.
Slideshare can have enormous reach. It has a lot of passing traffic, people can embed a Slideshare presentation into their own blog or website, so there is the potential for your slides to reach a significant audience beyond your existing online network.
