How to track someone's gtalk status updates

I was searching a way through which I can track the updates of gtalk status of a person who is not in my friend list. Here is the way, But firstly you must need Google/gtalk ID of your friend.

Step 1: Login to FriendFeed, and Navigate to "Friend's Setting" on the right side up on the home page.
Step 2: Add an Imaginary friend (you will find this option through a navigation tab in the menu).
Step 3: Select gtalk icon to get its status feed

Now, it creates a virtual friend who can be tracked by you. Whenever they updates their status, you will be notified through FriendFeed updates. This method also works with various other social networks on which you're not present but you want to keep yourself updated.
