Q: So how do you get your status updates Gmail/Google chat to show up in Google Buzz. Or how do I get them to stop?
Sometimes the change you want to make is buried deep within the settings page. Gmail started out super simple but lately it has gone the way of M$ adding hundreds of really cool options that most people will never notice.
Anyway… here is what you are looking for.
1. In Gmail, click on Settings and then Buzz (top right corner)
2. In the second section find Your connected sites: You have x connected sites – View and edit
3. Click on View and edit
4. In the box that pops up, click on the “Add” button next to Google chat status.
5. Click save and you are done.
