“As it is becoming increasingly important to simplify content-sharing within the social media realm, I feel that it is necessary for such options to be presented to users in a two-way communication channel. This feature will also make PowerPoint content visible to millions of users Instantaneously given YouTube's existing popularity thereby broadening the reach of the authors."
