Bug Description

UPDATE: I missed it at first, but the Facebook icon when broadcasting a new message is accompanied by a purple arrow. This colour is hardly visible on the default black background, so perhaps Facebook's default colour should be set to something as light as Twitter's and Identi.ca's, to make sure it's always just as visible as those are.

As screenshotted in [1], in the new Gwibber, the icons for Twitter and Identi.ca have little arrows next to them. I have no idea what these mean, but Facebook does not have one even though my settings for all three services are the same. This led me to wonder whether I had accidentally disabled Facebook broadcasting and spend a few minutes in confusing while investigating this. If the arrows are only part of the icons for kicks and giggles, it would improve usability to remove them, I think.

Oh ha, I just noticed there actually _is_ an arrow next to the Facebook icon, just that it's purple and thus hardly visible on the dark background. Perhaps Facebooks default colour should be something lighter than that.
