Xing‘s last campaign for attracting new members was kind of successful …I heard. Could have been an impulse why they started to improve the platforms menu navigation.
Some of the networks users were chosen to see the new menu first: to test it and in best case to participate on a survey which was created for this reason. We are surprised about the survey’s “quality”.
First reason is, that the survey opens in a pop-up! Then it shows us the typical form of an online survey… 2-4 different questions on one site and the “continue” button at the end. The strange thing is, that you are able to click through the whole survey without answering one single question… Well, it is nice that the authors left the choice, either to answer a question or not, to the participator, but what for then?
Funny is, what you find within the question about the breadcrumbs… they translated it as “Krümelpfad” (;
And a lot of question marks remain if you recognize that after finishing the survey, you get at xing’s welcome page, shown in the pop-up. No comment.

Krümelpfad hihi, das nennt sich doch Brotkrümelspur
There’s rathar a colloquial use of the word “breadcrumbs (trails)”. Especially for common users it’s possibly easier to mention the translation “Krümelpfad” instead of using the technical jargon “(Brot-)Krümelnavigation”. So why upset yourself!?
