Facebook Acquires 2 New Colors and 3 New Fonts for $1.2 Billion

Citing the boring sameness of their web presentation, the management of social media giant Facebook has contacted us here at the Scriptorium to purchase two new proprietary colors and 3 new custom fonts for $1.2 billion.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg observed that now that his company has topped the $100 billion mark it seemed safe to risk investing in a new look and feel. “With global climate change it’s time for a warmer look and feel,” said Zuckerberg. “We’re thinking something in an orange and pink palette and the look of a 14-year-old girl’s handwriting to help us recapture the youth market.”

In a related story, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Warner announced that they were also considering expanding their color palette and font selection, commenting that “We really want to set ourselves apart, so we’ll probably go with a slightly darker two tone version of whatever Facebook does and a font which appeals to Facebook’s current demographic.”

Industry experts expect Instagram to follow these moves with a redesign using fingerpaints and alphabet blocks to capture the entry-level computer user market.
