Why is Facebook blue?

Blue is a popular color in internet branding and marketing because it's generally regarded as the most universally liked color and evokes feelings of calmness or happiness. There's an urban myth, which may or may not be true, that Facebook is blue because Mark Zuckerberg (the founder) is red-green colorblind. In an interview with The New Yorker, he said blue is the richest color he can see.
