You’re building a social network, defined by users and friendships. A user object contains an id and meta data such as first name, last name. A friendship object represents a bidirectional connection between two users. You want to find the impact of a user. The impact of a user is defined by the size of the network of friends, their friends, and their friends, and so forth to infinity.
Both the interviewers were really nice and tried to help me whenever I was stuck.
