Accessing Facebook,Twitter from Gmail

"Google Buzz" is the New Buzz in town with everybody now Happily Buzzing from their Gmail A/Cs!

But there are certain functionalities which "Google Buzz" doesnot support viz..
1>Intergrating Orkut and exporting Buzzes from Gmail to Orkut (in spite of Orkut being Google's very own product! .. Still Wondering why!)
2>Integrating Facebook and exporting Buzzes from Gmail to Facebook.

But,Mashable  explains a New Way of "Integrating Facebook and Twitter into your Gmail Account and Accessing FB and Twitter right from your Gmail"! Cool Na? Here's how:

1>Activate “Add any gadget by URL” in Gmail Labs — you’ll find it near the bottom of the list.

2> Now go to Settings –> Gadgets. Here you’ll find a place to add Gadget URLs.

3>For Twitter, add this below code in the url space given:
https://twittergadget.appspot.com/gadget-gmail.xml

After adding, you can access your Twitter Account from Gmail and it looks something like this screenshot:


4>To integrate Facebook into Gmail, paste this below code:
http://hosting.gmodules.com/ig/gadgets/file/104971404861070329537/
facebook.xml

NOTE: Actually, my post width is not wide enuf to display the entire FB url in one line itself.. so i had to break it into 2 lines :)
So after u copy the link,make sure there is no space before "F" in Facebook... Thanks to Venky for pointing it out.. :)

After integration,you can access your FB right from your Gmail and it looks something like this screenshot!

The instructions before the comments were awesome !

And getting to the point , the tip was really helpful. And the facebook url has a space before f in facebook.
