Today, Microsoft brings in the Xbox Live Fall update which introduces access to social networking sites Twitter and Facebook and internet radio service Last.fm.

With the new Twitter feature, gamers can now post tweets through Xbox Live. Gamers can now also share photos and in-game screenshots , as well as view friends’ updates with the new Facebook add-on. Both the Twitter and Facebook tabs can be found in the My Community channel on Xbox Live’s dashboard.

And with the addition of Last.fm on Xbox Live, owners now have access to streaming internet radio service and features such as tailored listening habits and the Visual Radio slideshow that compiles fan-submitted photos.

The update also adds Zune video which gives gamers access to buy or rent instant streaming 1080p HD video and 5.1 surround sound. How cool is that?

The Twitter, Last.fm, and Facebook features requires an Xbox Live Gold membership.
