Why Facebook blue? ‘Because Mark Zuckerberg is red-green colour blind’ reveals an article in Digital Inspiration from July 2012.
A simple and logical reason for the Harvard dropout Founder of ‘The facebook’, the first social network, to choose blue as his main communications colour code. And guess what? Facebook is now a media and technology giant with over 1.3 billion users worldwide, in a social media galaxy dominated by the colour blue (Twitter, Linked In, WordPress, etc.).
Another surprising fact? Iceland’s attempt to use Facebook as a democratic tool, to reboost citizens relationships with the state after the 2008 financial crisis!
‘Colors don’t matter much to Zuckerberg; a few years ago, he took an online test and realized that he was red-green color-blind.Blue is Facebook’s dominant color, because, as he said, “blue is the richest color for me – I can see all of blue”.’
