It was only a matter of time before an awesome Tumblr theme developer created a theme that looks exactly like Facebook’s Timeline. That time has come thanks to creative agency Playground, Inc. In a blog post today, the company announced its new free Tumblr theme Facelr, which makes your Tumblr blog look strikingly similar to what your profile will look like on Facebook once Timeline launches publicly.

Typically reserved more familiar faces (like Spring’s Ashley Smith), this year’s Fall campaign is going to be different and uniquely you. You see, one thing we’ve discovered since making friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, et cetera — is that you inspire us as much as anyone or anything else: you helped us create our exclusive Fendi 2Bag, dress Linda Fargo for February Fashion Week and you even re-imagined the our Holiday Windows. And now we want you to star in our Fall campaign for 5F.
