Slideshare may not be safe

Recently, I released a presentation 50 Sites in 60 Minutes ver 2 on slideshare. It seems that some "adult" ads have been placed at the end of the presentation and in the related content pane on slideshare itself.

I highly recommend not using it until further notice as I attempt to have slideshare resolve the issue. If this can not be fixed and is an auto-generated thing on their part, I will sadly have to look for other alternate sites as this is not appropriate for educational use.

Thanks again for your understanding and any inconvenience!!

    Awesome presentation, by the way!

  2. Hey,

    Sorry that inappropriate content was displaying next to your presentation.

    I have both our content team and our engineering team looking into this right now. I'll post an update once I have a better sense of what's going on, and what we can do about it.

  3. I noticed that you now need a subscription to generate "secret" links. Try Sliderocket?
