If I were asked these questions, I would have responded like the following:
-Why Facebook?
World's biggest social network. Innovative people. Has a huge social impact, and it will give you an opportunity to make a difference at a global scale.
-What was the biggest technical problem that you solved?
Reaching the face-to-face interview.
-Do you have any apps on google play?
-Give me a scenario where the requirements were ambiguous, what did you do?
I was asked to design URL shortening service, with two different distributed architectural patterns. I can use any two patterns I like.
I used sharding and modern multi-tier with load-balancing and scalability.
