The tool is from Google and you can simply follow this link to add it to your iGoogle.The Firefox option is added to your iGoogle page and when selected you are asked to give access to the application to Facebook. Once done you can easily access Facebook from within iGoogle using the gadget and make use of the tool to update statuses on the social Network. There is however one issue with the tool that it doesn’t work in Chrome and has issues at times with Firefox, as in it doesn’t load too often and hangs. Perhaps it works fine for you.

This is another useful tool that enables users to update their statuses on numerous social networking sites at once. This Firefox add-on is placed at the bottom right corner of your browser. When you right click the button and select the post status update from the menu the status is sent to all social sites you have selected from the options in preferences. In the preferences you can specify what networks you want to send updates to and receive from as well as the duration from each social networking sites you have checked. Makes the whole interaction bit more prompt much like you get with the Digg add-on for Firefox.

Facebook Updates Via Twitter

The idea to have both Twitter and Facebook synced in a manner that when you update status on Twitter, the same is sent to your Facebook profile. However this isn’t for ever status update you send on Facebook and only those hash-tagged #fb are directed to your Facebook status and updated accordingly. The app is pretty easy and integrates quite simply linking the two platforms together via a simple Facebook App.
