Social Media Filter Not Working Properly on Reuters

Samsung Galaxy S7; Android 6.0.1

How to reproduce

  1. Ensure the option to hide social media buttons is enabled (along with all other blocking options, to match my scenario)
  2. Go to the ever popular
  3. Select an article
  4. See blank space where social media buttons would be (observed behavior)

Observed behaviour

Where social media buttons would usually display on Reuters, above the author name, and again at the bottom of the article, there is a blank space (implying the collapse function is not working properly perhaps?). When you tap the blank space, the invisible buttons still work, taking you to their respective sharing options. Logs from my device attached; video available here:

Expected behaviour

The area should be collapsed, so that as a user I would not know it existed in the first place, and no social media buttons or sharing options should be accessible.

  • Cc arthur added

How did you open the page exactly? Did you type "" and open an article or did you open the page via a link from a different app/browser?

@arthur sorry for not replying sooner! IIRC I typed it in, and then opened the article. However, I am no longer seeing this blank space currently. It looks like Reuters moved their social media buttons on mobile, but also it seems to be hiding properly now, so I'd consider this issue closed.
