Short and sweet this is two community tips in one.   Take a look at the following pen.

 

Tip 1:   If you wrap the url of any PDF that you upload to the community with the following bit of code, you will have a clean responsive embed... in fact it works with any kind of document, even powerpoints.  For example, the parts of the code you should remember or have handy are in red.

<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https://landsurveyorsunited.github.io/cssfiles/manuals/Surveying-Photos-Submitted-Land-Surveyors-United.pdf&embedded=true" frameborder="0" height="500px" width="100%"></iframe>
</div>

 If you simply replace the url () with your own PDF or Document URL, it will use the Google Docs default viewer to embed your document into the page like so:

 

 

Tip 2:  For those who have an active facebook page dedicated to your community, you may have members who engage your page by uploading and sharing photos.  I told you a while back about a Facebook Trick for how to use the submitted photos to get more followers to your page (See You May Not Know This About Facebook).  If you go to the page with the archive of submitted photos, simply scroll as far down as you can go and then CTRL+P to print a PDF version of the page.   Upload that into your Google Drive and whenever you have some time, go back in time by clicking on any photo and see if there were people who liked your photo but have not liked your page like so:

This is a good way to continually get your page more likes and more visits to your community, utilizing the content shared by your members.....or future members..
