3 Golden Rules of XING Netiquette

  • Please do not attack, slander or argue with other site members in public areas of the website
  • Try to imagine how others might interpret your forum entries, and to this end try to write as comprehensible and precise as possible
  • Please always keep in mind that you are responsible for what you write on the platform
  • General Rules of Conduct

    Open communication and direct exchange form the core of XING. There are various options available for getting into contact with other members. You can, for example, send private messages, submit a guestbook entry, communicate in groups or simply add a contact. First impressions are always crucial in determining the nature of any future communication and will make or break the quality of the contact.

    You should therefore adhere to the following general rules of conduct:

    • Bear in mind that non-verbal factors such as facial expressions, gestures and spoken language are not conveyed in online written communication.
    • Please also note that humor, sarcasm and irony can also be received in different ways by members due to the lack of non-verbal communication. Some members may not be familiar with abbreviations, emoticons and other common codes used in online communication.
    • XING is an international platform where different cultures meet with one another. Please keep in mind therefore that the ways in which other members conduct themselves and communicate may differ from your own.
    • Formulate messages, articles, comments and entries in a coherent and polite way. Always think about the interests of your communication partner.
    • All messages, articles, comments and entries should further the positive development of the communication in a constructive way.
    • The publication of private messages, messages containing false information or articles from closed areas of XING is not permitted and may lead to legal proceedings.
    • Entries that breach applicable law or the terms & conditions will result in your profile being deleted.
