Social Media Lookup Test

Write an application that:

  • Takes in a person’s name
  • Searches a social media network for that person
  • Returns known details for that person

Feel free to connect to any social media site you want (eg. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), or even mock your own. 

Your code should be written in such a way that the application could easily be changed to connect to another social media site or multiple sites, consolidating the responses.


This challenge should only take you a couple of hours; if you feel that any of your code could be improved but you have run out of time, please comment your code to say what you would have liked to have done.
