Why is Facebook Blue?

Interesting little tid-bit of information. Facebook uses blue because Mark Zuckerberg is red-green colorblind, something he learned in 2007. As he later explained "blue is the richest color for me - I can see all of blue."

Facebook Branding

If you're planning on using any of the Facebook assets - images, that sort of thing - you should probably spend some time browsing their brand resource center to make sure you're doing it right.
