Many people have asked, not surprisingly, whether they can customize the look of Feedspot without having to use some advanced scripting magic.

Today we are excited to introduce Theme Colors. Now you can choose your own Feedspot colors. Click on ‘Change View’ button from your dashboard to change theme.

So if you love purple, now you can stare at it every day.

If you ever get yourself into a state where your eyes start to hurt, the “Refresh” icon will let you revert to the defaults.

Discovering Who To Follow

With more than ten million sites on Feedspot, there are sure to be at least dozens of sites out there that will reflect your interests. The trouble is finding all of them. Today we’re beginning to roll out a simple, but powerful new feature to help address that — “Who to follow”. 

The suggestions are based on several factors, including sites you follow and similar sites followed by other users. The algorithms in this feature, built by our relevance team, suggest sites you don’t currently follow that you may find interesting. You’ll see these suggestions under the ‘Who to follow’ section. If you like a suggestion, click “follow”

Now, go find something new to follow. You never know what you might discover…
