the only multilingual social business network? That's hard to believe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.162.43.78 (talkcontribs)

not for long anymore, LinkedIn is working on a german version. Spoke is only available in english and ZoomInfo (border line, not really social) also english only. What else is there? --roy<sac> Talk! .oOo. 10:03, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

"people from over 160 countries" - actually people from 190 countries are registered, since beginning. Daniela Hinrichs, XING.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.143.45.100 (talkcontribs)

I'm wondering how Xing can advertise that joining their free service will allow one to "Regain control of your online identity! . . . and get a top position on Google, where you can determine what people see and read about you." How does this work for a professional who already has an on-line presence? Is this advertisement credible? Leishalynn 19:00, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

It should be maybe noted in this wiki article that canceling the openBC/Xing membership is only possible over the "help"-function. Only there a link can be found leading to a cancellation option. This practice is nearly as questionable as the one used for linkedin.com which is also documented the corresponding wiki article. All in all this wiki entry to xing reads as streamlined as corporate 2.0 reviewed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.207.140.3 (talkcontribs)

Is this an ad? Because it sure does sound like one. 136.199.4.181 (talk) 13:18, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Xing just xinged me by charging me for an annualsubscription renewal I did not want. Beware they are highly deceptive — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.3.177.2 (talk) 20:33, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
