Not just among social media platforms, Facebook is one of the most recognised brands in the world, and so its logo. 

The Facebook logo features a simple design. It has a white lowercase font on a blue background. 

Mike Buzzard and Joe Kral designed the first Facebook logo.

Some reports say that the blue and white colour scheme was opted intentionally. It was apparently based on Mark Zuckerberg's vision condition.

Blue has widely been attributed to Zuckerberg's red-green colour blindness. 

However, it's unclear if this is the real reason behind the logo's colour. 

Over the years, the brand's logo underwent three or four major revisions.
