As I mentioned, you can always develop your own Chatter components with the Chatter APIs:

 

http://developer.force.com/chatter

 

Another option might be to create a standard page layout for things like the account detail page, and then add your VF page to it inline. 

 

Or wait until Winter '11, which will be released this October.

We'll be releasing chatter components for Visualforce in the Winter '11 release. In the mean time, the only way to get Chatter on a VF page would be to reimplement that Chatter UI yourself, or use one of the AppExchange packages that provide something similar:

Thanks stephan, for a response . Is there any other work around than the apps from app-exchange . Chatter is a really good thing but since most of our pages are overrides we are not able to use the chatter feature to follow accounts/contacts/cases !!!
