Agile Testing For Social Media Application Using Impact Analysis and Sprint

about client

The client is a global leader in providing software services in various domains like ERP, SAAS, Social media, Inventory, marketing & sales etc. Client hired us for social media app testing to get assured against every quality parameter.

Product Overview

The software product was a social media application(iOS, Android and Web App) that allowed users to create, publish, review, and view content in the form of images, videos, and audio files.

The user can view different feeds by searching. Some functionalities of the product:

  • Friend’s/ celebrity’s name (e.g., Taylor Swift), which is a clickable link that takes the user to the profile screen of the friend/celebrity.
  • Users can see how many images they have uploaded. For example, a user has uploaded 17 files; through a clickable link, users are taken to the screen where other photos are displayed.
  • All these feeds are scrollable, and the latest will be displayed on top.

Testing Challenges


Lack of detailed requirement (Story):

  • Unclear Requirements Lack
  • No traditional style of business or detailed documents existed, and a lot of information was in the conversations from the notes.
  • The client was not clear about his requirements, which made the whole process difficult.
  • Constant Changes
  • Requirements were constantly changing & the end date to deliver the project was fixed, so we got short time to prepare test cases.
  • Testing started after developers developed and integrated the system, so late-breaking defects were disrupting the project.
  • Fixed Release Date
  • Though along with the constant changes implementation at client's end, we had to keep going with strict task timeline as release date was fixed.
  • Releases were shared with the client at the end of a milestone to get the feedback. Changes suggested after the completion of milestone were increasing rework.

What's AGILE and It's NEED?

  • Agile allows change & ease of movement.
  • Agile consists of incremental software development methodologie.
  • Agile makes it possible to deliver excellent quality in less time.
  • Agile testing involves testing from the customer perspective as early as possible.

Our Project Offerings: Agile Testing Services


Product Solutions

  • Requirements were changing on a daily basis & this could have affected the whole project so we opt for agile testing approach for this social media app.
  • We created an agile team comprised of the client, developers, testers, database experts, UI developer. Product owner and a scrum master were identified among the team. All these members worked together in collaboration.
  • Agile members conducted SCRUM meetings every day. The team member assigned a task for the day and any foreseen challenge in achieving it.
  • The agile team identified product backlogs, i.e., the list of all things that need to be done within the project.
  • Our QA team worked with the development team to troubleshoot problems found during sprint testing.
  • We approached the client to be an active part of finalizing requirements and the flow of the application, leaving no space for assumptions.
  • BugRaptors ensured timely and full test coverage. We shared the test cases with the development team beforehand so that there were no missing scenarios.
  • Three teams were deployed within the testing team: The white box test team, Acceptance test team, System testing team.
