Xing: number of D-A-CH users 2013-2020

Xing user numbers in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland, shortened to D-A-CH in German) have been rising year after year. It is the leading German-language professional social network.

Market leader

Xing based its headquarters in Hamburg and has since expanded to include offices in other cities. Based on official figures, it has 16 million members. Most companies in Germany publish their job ads on Xing, followed by Facebook and LinkedIn. Among job-seekers, Xing was the leading source of information, with LinkedIn and Facebook once again runners-up. While many users may have both a Xing and a LinkedIn profile, especially if they are interested in international job searches in the long run, it’s common knowledge that on the German job market a Xing profile is encouraged.

If it ain’t got that Xing

The share of users in Germany participating in professional online networks has been gradually growing in recent years. Based on German user surveys, Xing is also in the top ten regularly used social networks in general.
