Media interview questions shared by candidates
Tell me how you would scale a social media software platform?
I didn't have a good answer for this one.
Its such a tricky question. I guess its by the analytic we use to know the page views and all..
Try to define "scale", ask for clarifications. Are we trying to scale to more users or to more ad providers? Are there any current bottlenecks? What is the goal here? How about we improve the experience by providing more relevant ads? etc...
