A/B test current link preview design vs. old Prototype 1.
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Story Points


We'd like to run an a/b test (in production) of the current link preview dialog against the original first prototype of the link preview.
We'll just need some design polishing of the original prototype.

This was the design of Prototype 1:

My questions are:

  • Do we want to leave out the overflow menu (with options to save the page, share, etc) from this design?
  • Do we want the entire area to be tappable to go to the target page? (i.e. no "Continue to Article" button)

@Dbrant @JKatzWMF

  • We decided to leave out overflow menu.
  • We will include Continue to Article button. Lets use the same Continue to Article button from the other design.
  • Make title black.
