Are there any scripts to integrate social networking site's chat and posting features into a webpage using PHP or JS... for example a section with Facebook chat, a section to post to twitter and maybe even YouTube comments.

This depends on the social network. Facebook's developer center will help you. http://developers.facebook.com/

There is 2 social application from Facebook that can be used as chat/comments box.

  • Comments - This is a basic comment box where people will be able to add comments.
  • Live Stream - This basically acts as a chat box where people will be able to talk live.

The easiest way to make these work on your website or page is to download and use the their Javascript SDK kit. It's pretty easy to use and you can setup them within a few hours.

Yioiu should investigate twitter Anywhere - http://dev.twitter.com/anywhere/ a cool implementation of what you seek with a few lines of JS

Update: Twitter's Anywhere project is now deprecated and ceased functioning on March 5th 2013.

Here's some options for Google:

Google Friend Connect doesn't have a huge amount of uptake, but does have a page widget: http://www.google.com/friendconnect/

And Buzz has an API that you can use through pure JavaScript: http://code.google.com/apis/buzz/buttons_and_gadgets.html

But... just because you can doesn't mean you should. Think about this in terms of value to your site's visitors. Don't do it just to be cool.

UPDATE: Google has retired Google Friend Connect in favor for Google Follows Blog which uses Google Plus. Additionally Google Buzz has also been retired.
