Test Scenarios of Facebook

In this post, we will present some test scenarios of Facebook. Although there would be thousands of test cases for facebook we are limiting the tests to common features like – profile setting, comments, and post in timeline etc.

We will leave features like creating signup, login, page creation, groups creation, events etc. Please note that the below-mentioned scenarios are for reference only to teach the concept of test scenario writing, the tests are nowhere related to actual Facebook’s testing.
