Traditional GNOME panel applets are not supported in gnome-shell as
explained here. The general design of GNOME 3 puts more emphasis on
full applications, instead of squeezing too much into a small strip or
space at the edge of your screen. There are, however, people working
on an extension mechanism for the shell, similar to Firefox
extensions. The code lives in this git repository. We don't expect
this to be available in polished or packaged form for GNOME 3.0,

Any existing applets that have been adapted to use the new
libpanel-applet will be available in fallback mode. However, fallback
is not considered the default mode of operation and will not be
actively developed in the future. For more information on applets and
transitioning to gnome-shell, see this GNOME wiki page.

Some applets support a -w switch that allows them to run in a
dedicated window if needed."
