Integrating Facebook and Twitter into Gmail
Google has just launched Google Buzz , which "has stormed the web like a swarm of locusts. An array of strong features, integration with Gmail, and lots of press have turned Buzz into an overnight phenomenon" (courtesy: Mashable) . But for me, it was a bit disturbing and a BORING!!
Some of us know and MOST of us are unaware of the fact that we are actually able to integrate Twitter and Facebook into our Gmail. YES!! it is possible.. And by doing so, u won't have to sacrifice tweeting and facebooking.
By using third party gadgets, we'll be able to club Facebook, Twitter and Gmail into a same window! Aint that good?
Here I'll be giving a step by step procedure on HOW TO INTEGRATE FACEBOOK AND TWITTER INTO GMAIL.
Step 1: Go to Gmail Labs and activate "Add any gadget by URL". You'll be able to find it towards the bottom of the list.
Step 2: After completing step 1, go to Settings -> Gadgets.
Step 3: Add the TwitterGadgetApp, by copy-pasting the below mentioned URL on to Gmail Gadget Settings.
Step 4: Next, we add the Facebook Gadget, the same way we added the TwitterGadgetApp.
Copy-paste the below mentioned URL on to Gmail Gadget Settings.
Refer to the screenshots.
Thats it..!! Now Buzz, Twitter and Facebook are wrapped together in a single packet!! Now you don't have to sacrifice tweeting and facebooking even if u are bloody addicted to BUZZing.. :)
Along with all that.. I am putting forward a question.. With all those Buzz, FB and Twitter along with Gmail, Ain't that information overloading.??? :(
