In this chapter I'm going to introduce you to the various ways you can share your fabulous prezi with the world. Here's an overview. The first is to publish on prezi.com. You can also embed it into a blog or website or create a standalone file that you can present offline or share directly. There are benefits to each. Publishing on prezi.com is a way to easily host your prezi so you can share with the world, get it indexed by Google, and embedded on other sites. It also makes it searchable by over fifteen million prezi members, giving your presentation a lot of exposure.
Members can comment on it and you can get valuable feedback and hopefully praise. From there you can embed your prezi right in your own blog or website. The prezi's hosted on Prezi.com, but you get to feature it in any way you like. Or if you want to share the old-fashioned way, you can create a standalone portable prezi file. That file can be shared via email or old- fashioned sneakernet, putting on a thumb drive or a CD and passing it around. Now I should acknowledge that sometimes you have a prezi that you don't want to share with the world. In that case, you can publish it on prezi.com but set that permissions to private, and we'll talk about that more in depth later in this chapter.
There is the fourth way to publish that didn't make the main list because it's pretty specialized: printing your prezi. You can print to a PDF file where each point in your path becomes a page. This can be useful if you need to have handouts or if you need to communicate with some people who may not have Flash Player installed. It can also be used if you're used to having speaker notes like you do with traditional presentation programs such as PowerPoint. You can print out the PDF and write the notes for yourself at each path point. Here's a tip when publishing your Prezi online rather than giving it live: you're not there speaking, so meaning and context can be lost.
You may want to consider making an online version of your presentation, adding voiceovers to your frames or adding some additional notes within the frames to flesh out your points. So now let's take a closer look at each of the three main publishing methods, and I'll walk you through each step by step.
