We've considered social tracking service FriendFeed a pretty neat way to aggregate your online life, but now it's a lot easier to keep tabs on what's happening with your circle of net-connected friends, even if you hardly ever log in at FriendFeed's site. The service has just rolled out a Twitter-like IM integration, which can send updates when particular friends update their feeds, let you update your own feed and post messages to it, pull down the full entry when you get a stub notification, and many more tasks.

FriendFeed's IM tools require a Google Talk/Gmail or Jabber-compliant chat client.
