Outrage as Facebook change Logo to from Blue to Red

**UPDATE, 2nd APRIL** Obviously, this was a April Fools Joke. Thanks to all who commented via Twitter, Facebook and the comments section below 🙂

Like some of you who may have just heard, Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team have just announced their intentions to change the colour of the Facebook logo from blue to red.

Obviously, this isn’t a change that most of their users are happy with, and as caused quite a bit of outrage since they announced it just 2 hours ago.

In my opinion, red would be a bad choice. If they change the logo, they’re going to have to change the entire Facebook page colour scheme, too. Being surrounding by red is going to make users nauseous – not to mention stressed out!

Yep, getting rid of the iconic, calming blue is a big mistake, although Mark Zuckerberg’s explanation of the change is quite intriguing.
