The problem is, on first login since Slideshare's update, I found a hot-linked organizational name glaring from the top corner of the display, which opened My Slidespace when I clicked on it. Though the slidespace then announced "Hello, [+ username]!" at the top right, the "Welcome back, ..." message in the sidebar to the left still displayed the organizational name.
The work around to get back to me required:
- Opening the user profile page for editing (Edit profile),
- Switching the Account Type to Default, and
- Saving the changes.
