Designing for the global diversity of human needs

We're bringing people closer together with the Facebook app, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, Workplace, Portal and Novi.


Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. And serving billions of people comes with opportunities and challenges no company has ever faced.

The global Facebook Design community is composed of product designers, content strategists, user experience researchers, communication designers, industrial designers, sound designers, creative operations specialists and more. We are pioneering technologies to bring people closer together, and our teams share in the responsibility of doing it at global scale. We are committed to designing and building Facebook apps and technologies—the Facebook app, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, Workplace, Portal and Novi—to serve a diverse global community.

We believe connection is fundamental to the human experience and designing to build community for the world comes with tremendous responsibility. Often we’re working in uncharted territory where new communication behaviors emerge. Our design teams bring a principled perspective to shaping these interactions: between people and our products; among friends and family; between organizations, advertisers, publishers, developers, creators and their communities. As the company matures and our teams grow, every day our design disciplines actively work together to help fulfill our potential for design thinking and craft.
