The answer I found is with PowerPoint Tab from SocialAppsHQ. With PowerPoint tab you
can bring all your presentations from Slideshare to Facebook fan pages and show them to
your fans. The benefits of this app include:

Fan convenience: It will be easier for your fans to find the PowerPoint read earlier. While
looking for the particular presentation, the fan may come across other interesting
presentations and this in turn will drive engagement.
Viral effect: Fans can share the presentation on your page with their friends. This can
initiate a viral presentation sharing phenomenon.
I think that this app will be handy for all the sectors. It’s really amazing.
