You can use the Address Book Comparison to compare those in your XING network with other online address books (e.g. your e-mail account address book). Simply import contact data from the address book of your e-mail service (Yahoo! or Gmail) and find out which of your coworkers, business partners, acquaintances and friends are already on XING. You’ll see all matches in a list and can then add them as a XING contact as well.
Data from your address book is saved in order to carry out this comparison and to suggest possible contacts either to you or your contacts. You can of course delete this data at any time:
- Go to the Privacy settings.
- Deactivate the option "I grant XING permission to save my data records from address book syncs.".
