Network Value Test

December 19, 2007 at 4:15 pm Leave a comment

As a form of promotion for its social networking platform, XING introduced the network value test, which gives you a number in Euros on what your network value (money you could make in the next 10 years based on your network) is. It also compares you to the average and top 10 percentile of network values other people have. It is an interesting idea to try to affix a numerical number to your networking behavior, size of network, frequency of exchange etc. However, it is not quite transparent (at first sight, anyway) of how this is calculated, or even what it actually means.

Also, what is really strange, is that you have to re-enter all the information, although it could be read right out of your Xing profile, which would limit the number of errors and increase accuracy. Also, changing just a few variables really does make a real difference, which leads you to wonder how accurate you entered your data, or how to understand the questions given. Try it out and see for yourself.
