Facebook is blue for a reason because Mark Zuckerberg suffers from red/green colour blindness and can see blue best.

In July 2011, Zuckerberg surpassed Google+ co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to become the most followed user on Google's social networking site.

Zuckerberg wears the same gray Facebook T-shirt almost every day because he believes it saves him time in the morning.

Zuckerberg doesn't have a verified Twitter profile and has nearly 3 lakh followers despite not being very active on the micro-blogging site.
