    Really, does Facebook & Airbnb use every design tool ever made? That must be exhausting.

      Speaking from marketing experience, this could mean as little as one Facebook designer signed up once. Though considering the sheer number of designers at Facebook, it's not unfathomable that a single team uses it.

        I often think that as well when I see logos on marketing sites. We don't use or claim any company as a customer publicly unless we have an enterprise contract with them and are allowed to do so.

      I work on Facebook Messenger and my team uses Wake primarily. We have quite a few designers, some are in Seattle, and all of us are distributed into various teams within Messsenger, and subteams within that. For example, I work in Messenger Growth, and within that I work on Thread Growth.

      Wake really helps us quickly get feedback without having to pull everyone into an in person meeting. We use Dropbox to host our Sketch files.

      That being said, we also send bugs and requests to Wake a bunch ;)

    From what I remember Wake seems to be the commercial version of Facebook's own Pixel Cloud:

    @chris-kalani can probably verify this.

      You are correct, sir! I left Facebook a few years ago so I'm not sure sure how Pixelcloud has changed. But Wake was definitely inspired by the early Pixelcloud and the way we worked on the design team there. Fun fact: the Messenger design team uses Wake now :)

    I hear about this resource for the first time. It is very interesting, if already it is used by the developers of Facebook.
