FriendFeed debuts custom themes

In a quick post on their blog, FriendFeed announced that in addition to the themes already available to users, they would now be supporting custom themes.

Options have been added to let users upload a background image and choose colors for text, links, and more for their profile page. They also plan to add more functionality and customization options in the future but wanted to give users a taste right away. Themes are also supported for groups.

In addition to custom themes, FriendFeed also announced that, starting today, people visiting your profile will see the theme you've chosen or created. In the past, your theme was only visible to you. If you're not into this, they've has also given users an option to turn off theme visibility to viewers.

With Facebook's acquisition of FriendFeed earlier this week no one is sure what the future of FriendFeed is going to look like, but this is a pretty clear indication that they're not just going to let the site remain idle.
