Website[edit | edit source]

The site uses blue as its signature colors as Mark Zuckerberg is red-green colorblind. He says that "blue is the richest color for me—I can see all of blue." The website is built by PHP in C++ and Facebook has little windows where you can chat with your friend or play minigames.
