Slideshare.net took a look back at the Year of 2013:
- Presentations Got Shorter and More Visual: People today want shorter, more visual content — just look to the popularity of Instagram, Snapchat and just about everything else on the Web. That has manifested itself in presentations, too. Decks have gotten shorter, while the use and size of images in presentations have grown.
- Cars Are Back: Detroit may have filed for bankruptcy, but SlideShares about cars were at a high: The Automotive category had the biggest increase in uploads.
- More on Mobile: Not surprisingly, mobile views were on the rise (a 223% jump from last year!). More interestingly: People consume more slides in a SlideShare when they are on a mobile device rather than at a desktop computer.
