Slide, founded by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, makes widgets that help people express themselves. The company took a big risk in 2006 when they gave users the ability to auto-insert slide shows into their MySpace pages and blasting bulletins out to all their friends.[…]

Slide has since evolved to offer a number of widgets. Users create and personalize widgets on Slide.com and can then use them on social networks, blogs and desktops.

According to comScore Slide has more than 117 million unique monthly viewers. Slide also claims more than 200,000 new Slide Shows are added to the Slide Network each day.


Slide initially focused on MySpace, but now their widgets can be used on a number of sites including Facebook, Bebo, Hi5, Xanga, Tagged and Blogger. In addition, Slide also has some of the most popular applications on the Facebook Platform. Top Friends, a Facebook app which displays a user’s best friends on their profile, has over 8 million users. Most of Slide’s traffic comes through the use of their widgets though, which are Slide Shows, Guestbook, Image Hosting, FunPix (spice up your pictures), SkinFlix (personalize YouTube clips) and Screensaver. When you want to add a little pizzazz to your profile, website or desktop, these are sure to do the trick!
