Popularity:

Usage examples: The Facade pattern is commonly used in PHP applications, where the facade classes simplify the work with complex libraries or APIs.

Identification: Facade can be recognized in a class that has a simple interface, but delegates most of the work to other classes. Usually, facades manage the full life cycle of objects they use.
