If you don’t like using your mouse to scroll and click on everything in your Facebook News Feed, Facebook has a few built-in shortcuts that can make things a lot faster.
Some of you may have already discovered these, but for those that haven’t, here are the shortcuts you need to know:
- Use j and k to move from one news feed item to the next, just like in Google Reader or Gmail. (Once you start with j or k, you can use the arrow keys as well.)
- Press c to comment on the selected story.
- Press l to like the selected story.
- Press Enter to focus on the text box when making a post.
Sadly, the old keyboard shortcuts don’t work on the new Facebook design, but these ones are pretty handy!
