Why Facebook is Blue in color?

Color is always an important factor while designing a new website, it make psychological impact on human brain. To make the website user friendly, web designers has to come up with an appropriate color. So before designing a new website, a question comes that which color would be most effective for the website. Similarly while designing Facebook why the founder, Mark Zuckerberg came up with only Blue color?. This idea came to my mind when one day I was making some changes on my Facebook profile I thought why only blue color, is there some reason behind blue color for Facebook?. So I searched and came up with a reason and today I am going to share it with you.

Why Mark Zuckerberg was forced to pick Blue Color for Facebook?

Facebook Login

Facebook was launched in 2004, from then onwards they have changed many features and design but they are sticking with the same color that is Blue, not changed to gray, red, green or any other colors. Not even with the desktop website but also in mobile app the color of Facebook is Blue. The reason behind the Blue color is that the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg (born May 14, 1984) is having red-green color blindness and the best color he can see is Blue.

The Facebook founder told the magazine: “Blue is the richest color for me”.

This was the secret behind the Facebook being Blue in color.
