Lately, Microsoft has been providing many options for sharing Microsoft Office documents online -- previously we showed how you can share PowerPoint presentations online using the Microsoft Office Web Viewer and SkyDrive. There is a third option (also on SkyDrive) that enables you to share presentations on social sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn). You can easily share these presentations via a link with your friends, colleagues, and family.

In a previous tutorial, we showed you how you can Share PowerPoint Presentations Online using the Microsoft Office Web Viewer. That option works great if you have your own domain where you want to upload and share PowerPoint presentations (or even Word and Excel files). However, if you already use Microsoft's SkyDrive to create and edit your presentations, then it makes sense to use a similar sharing option that is already built within the SkyDrive service.

Let us say that you want to share your PowerPoint presentations with others – but you don’t know if they have a version of PowerPoint installed on their computers. Or what if you change your presentation slides, and you want your audience or intended recipients to always have access to your updated content? If either of these scenarios sounds familiar to you, then you will love Microsoft’s new Microsoft Office Web Viewer.
