Sorry to hear that. Might be worth reaching out to the recruiter for feedback

I did and did not receive any response post the rejection email.

Many possible reasons - they hired an experienced candidate? Your answers might have lacked enough depth they were looking for? FAANG is really tough to get into because many smart people are applying to those companies. Keep applying for those roles. You’ll get better every time you try.

Follow up again (nicely). Could be anything and your lack of context will make you nuts if you let it.
