Announcing the Brickset/LEGO Facebook collaboration

I'm pleased to be able to reveal that I've been assisting LEGO with the implementation of a 'My LEGO Timeline' app on Facebook.

The app is now in Beta. It can be accessed from the LEGO Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/LEGOGROUP, although it's not obvious how to find it. You have to scroll down a bit until the LEGO/Timeline/Now menu appears at the top. There's a link 'My LEGO Timeline' under timeline. I'm not sure how you get to it before that menu appears: if you know, PLMK!

The direct URL is http://www.facebook.com/LEGOGROUP#!/LEGOGROUP/app_290335034365496.

Anyway, the idea is that you pick sets that you've built, say when you did so, and they appear on a timeline. I'm not sure it'll be entirely useful to us hardcore AFOLs, but for the casual user, i.e. most of the 2 million who've liked the LEGO page, I guess it could be fun.

At the moment it seems LEGO just want to 'see who finds it' so aren't announcing it on their page yet. I'm doing so here because, well, someone's got to give it a go and test it, right?

    Good idea. Now, how much room do they have on the timeline?

    Makes perfect sense!

    How cool, seeing the Brickset logo there! Great stuff Huw. Now, if I could export my ACM data to automatically populate it... ;o)

    Um... Do you want to know about bugs Huw?

    I've been asked to state that this is a 'very early beta', so expect to find some problems.

    No then ;o)

    It's cute having sets dotted through your Timeline!

    Sorry, yes please, and I'll pass them on.

    Various sets seem to be pulling the wrong images -- the Monster Fighter ones all use some green construction crane, for instance. Multiple superhero sets seem to use the Batmobile chase image.
