SnappLinks for IBM Connections adds Scribd support




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 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.
