TIPS ON TESTING PINTEREST (RICH PINS) BUTTON

Recently one of a project I’m working has changed from PHP to react technology, as usual with my team I created a test plan  and created test scenarios we are going to cover for this change but ignored sharing buttons as I was aware that react framework is completely different from PHP assumed that nothing drastic might have changed in metadata which is shared to social sharing. We are using rich pins and it dynamic pins.

The page was enabled for few users for testing as we have A/B testing before we do launches to study the impact of new changes. An interesting bug got noticed by users wrong details were getting displayed on various pins. How bad can it get bug is reported by users and not by testers?

So the investigation was carried out by developer and testing team found that entire metadata was messed and found more bugs which developer fixed got them fixed. As tester I know I shouldn’t ignoring even minute change on the page so learnt my lesson hard way result of my laziness.

Here is the list of scenarios and tools I used to validate data
