Xing is dead?!

Yesterday the Xing business network renewed its app.Does this breathe new life? We doubt.

Xing is the leading business network in German-speaking countries, but not in Switzerland. There has LinkedIn With around 3 million members the nose towards Xing (about 1 million members).

The app update brings fresh look and new functions.We are excited to see if this XING will breathe new life into.Because we find: The interactions on Xing are very sparse and we intend to Company profile deactivate.

Even those who talk to Swiss social experts about Xing get a dark picture.Dead profiles, hardly any interactions - and All relevant debates take place on LinkedIn.

For job seekers and for the HR department, XING may make sense.Because many companies still publish job offers on XING and PThe recruite solutions use the search.

Also Industry and regional groups can serve well.Can, because on the one hand there were rarely taking and find meetings “in Real Life” due to the coronavirus, on the other hand, regular and current contributions are in short supply in many groups.

It is a question of costs: Many Xing functions are only accessible to premium members, useful functions that are at LinkedIn for free are.

Comvation AG does not have to dance at all weddings, Set priorities, be future -oriented. We can also fill jobs without the help of Xing.We can exchange ourselves on other social networks as well as very much like by phone, email or personally with us on Burgstrasse. Or soon inMetaverse 😃
