Why have been Facebook recruiters ignoring me for months?

I think I am a good engineer. Most companies are constantly asking me to interview and respond my emails very promptly. All the big ones Google amazon apple Twitter Netflix Nvidia etc.
However for some time Facebook hasn't pinged me and even if I reach to their recruiters they will not reply?
Could it be because I attempted about 6 months ago to apply to an oculus position and the interview didn't become an offer? That's the only reason I could think of, but I am not sure their hiring systems are connected.
In any case, it seems fairly rude. An explanation would be more than enough.

    You applied 6 months ago? If you fail you have to wait a year. Pretty standard practice.

      Yes, but is a fail interview in oculus connected to Facebook? Have they merged their hiring systems.

    You basically get one interview chance a year, same as the other large companies.

      I guess the intent of my question was lost . I was wondering if oculus already counts as part of Facebook for interview purposes

    Because you don't know English. On the other hand, neither do their interviewers hmmm

    Yep, you're just an FB user, not an FB architect.

    Amazon, Facebook, and Google are among the companies whose recruiters contact me on an almost weekly basis. It definitely could be your Profile and/or past performance. Don't look so desperate, wait a little bit and they might just reach out without you attempting to beat their door down.

    If you need to make a switch soon, then try a different company.
