Writing scalable recommender system with Hadoop

Lets say we want to implement a very simple "people you might know" recommender algorithm. Obviously, the speed and scalability of such an algorithm is as important as the actual logic behind the algorithm because such algorithms generally run over a "huge" graph and implementing these normally would probably take a lot of time for recommending friends even for just one user. I will show how to implement a very naive recommender algorithm efficiently. The basic idea of the algorithm is that if person A and person B do not know each other but they have a lot of mutual friends, then the system should recommend that they connect with each other. We will do this is hadoop which is an open source software for highly reliable, scalable distributed computing. The main idea behind it is map and reduce jobs.
