No, that’s not a typo! On the heels of our announcement of SlideShare® support, SNAPPS has added support for Scribd® document embedding in SnappLinks™, its innovative add-on for IBM® Connections® blogs and wikis.
Scribd is the world’s largest digital library where people can publish, discover, and read books and documents of all kinds on the web or any mobile device. Millions of books and documents have been contributed to Scribd by the community and this content reaches an audience of 100 million people around the world every month.
Embedding Scribd documents is just as easy as SlideShare – the scribd.com website has a version of each document with an Embed link. Clicking that link gives you options for size, pagination, height and width and generates the embed code.
SnappLinks™ gives you a single button in the editor to paste in the Scribd code, immediately creating embedded rich content.
Scribd is unique in that due to the nature of the media it gives you a full-screen reading option. We’ve tried this in Connections and it makes for a very clean, highly consumable reading experience.
Why embed a Scribd document in Connections? Simple, really.
- No need to upload content to Connections
- Have private conversations about public documents
- Take advantage of a growing platform’s technology
Scribd support is, as of today, included in SnappLinks for IBM Connections along with SlideShare, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Google Maps, Wikipedia and email links. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a demo or pricing information.
