Introducing the Like Launcher [Video]

Over the years, we here at The Brothers Brick have written a few guides about how to get your LEGO creations featured on our website. But what if you want more? Well then janbenedict_yap has the solution for you! Introducing the Like Launcher!

facebook like launcher

Use it launch some Facebook likes into the world and maybe some of those good vibes will come back to you in the form of likes on pictures of your LEGO models. Simply load a like into the launcher to fire it at what pleases you. You can utilize it in one of two ways: Trajectory Mode or Direct Fire mode. I know when I like something, my favourite way to let you know is to shoot a thumbs up, right in your face. And now you can too! But don’t take my word for it, check out on video.

Reminder: Get your LEGO fix with TBB on Facebook & Twitter

The Brothers Brick on FacebookEnough of you out there have joined the ranks of our readership since my last post about this that a brief reminder seems in order: If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, you can see when we’ve posted something new here on The Brothers Brick as soon as we post it.

As always, there are lots of ways to connect with TBB and get your daily LEGO fix from us elsewhere on the web:

Finally, don’t forget that you can help define the “face” of TBB on Facebook and Twitter by submitting your LEGO photos to our TBB Cover Photos pool on Flickr.

Reminder: The Brothers Brick on Facebook & Twitter

The Brothers Brick on FacebookWe had some intermittent downtime this evening, and I used Facebook and Twitter to communicate with our readers about our status.

That reminded me that it’s been a long time since we let everyone know out there who isn’t already a subscriber on either of those other services that you can get notifications about new posts here on The Brothers Brick without ever leaving Facebook or Twitter.

  • Like our page on Facebook to get updates about new TBB posts right on your Facebook home page.
  • Follow us on Twitter for tweets whenever we post something here.

Both of these are great ways to get in touch with us if you’re having trouble with our (sadly all-too-often buggy) contact page. We also hope to have a mobile-optimized site online sometime soon, making it even easier to stay current with TBB when you’re on the go.

While we’re at it, I’ll highlight a few more ways to get your TBB fix beyond Brothers-Brick.com.

  • YouTube automatically aggregates all the videos we’ve highlighted.
  • As always, our RSS feed lets you get full posts in your favorite reader, Google homepage, or wherever feeds are supported.
  • For all the photos we’ve featured from Flickr, there’s a Flickr group. And in case you didn’t notice it in my post about the new modular set yesterday, TBB now has a Flickr account of its own.

Finally, I’ll mention our Google+ page. Unfortunately (the last time I checked), Google hasn’t released an API that lets sites like Brothers-Brick.com post updates to G+ pages, so it’s just a placeholder for now. We know that we have readers at Google, so *nudge nudge*
