People are just realizing there’s a reason why Facebook is blue and it’s all down to Mark Zuckerberg’s medical condition

IF you have ever wondered why Facebook is very blue, you may be surprised to learn it’s down to more than just a simple style choice.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg actually has a medical condition that made him sway towards picking the bright blue color.

Zuckerberg actually revealed why Facebook is blue over a decade ago.

However, every so often, new people find out the reason and share their amazement on social media.

According to The New Yorker, Facebook is blue because Zuckerberg, its founder and CEO, is color blind.

Zuckerberg told the magazine: “Blue is the richest color for me. I can see all of blue.”

The billionaire is red-green colorblind.

People with this condition generally perceive greens as more of a red.

It’s a mild type of color blindness and the most common type.

People are born with the condition and also often have difficulty seeing yellow as well as differentiating between shades of red and green.

Blue is said to be the best color for clear viewing by people with red-green colorblindness.

It dominates the Facebook platform to this day, despite Zuckerberg revealing that fact in 2010.

Another interesting fact about the Meta CEO is that he wears the same clothes every day.

He says this helps him to focus on more important things like his work.

This is also a habit that genius Albert Einstein adopted later in life as he thought it was more efficient.
