XING Locates Business Contacts With Google Maps

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and HAMBURG, GERMANY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 25, 2008 -- XING ( today announced a new feature with which its members can view the distribution of their business network with Google Maps. The integration of Google Maps into the XING platform gives members a new perspective on their personal network, visualizing geographic locations of their direct business contacts on a map or satellite display. Contacts' business addresses can be displayed provided a member is logged in to XING and the contacts permit such a display and release the information to the member.

The new service gives members an additional advantage in their daily professional lives. At a glance, XING members can see which countries and cities are represented in their network and which are not. The map view is also an easy way to find regional experts or arrange business meetings when traveling.

As always, XING members will remain in full control of their own data and privacy settings. Each member decides whether to allow their business address to be displayed on the map, who has access to their business address, and who can view their exact position on the map. These settings can be modified at any time.

The beta version of the new map feature will go live for all XING members today.
