Facebook Cheat Sheet Highlights The Best Keyboard Shortcuts

Save time (while wasting time) on Facebook with handy keyboard shortcuts for quickly getting around the social networking site, finding conversations and composing messages. This Facebook Cheat Sheet offers up all the shortcuts plus a guide to emoticons.

Most of the basic shortcuts use Alt+ a number, as we've noted previously. Other shortcuts that we haven't seen before include Alt+Q to show or hide the keyboard shortcuts available and Alt+C to start a new message.

Note that the shortcuts work differently in specific browsers and OSes. As My Clever Agency instructs us, use these combinations:


Firefox: Shift + Alt + #

Chrome: Alt + #


Firefox : Control + #

Chrome: Control + Option + #

Safari: Control + Option + #

My favourite shortcut that's not on here is the "L" shortcut to like a photo in a post.

Here's the full cheat sheet (click to expand or right-click to save):

    - Finally decided to register instead of keep posting with guest access, hope I'm welcome here guys :P

    None of these work, tried on my mac with Chrome at work and with Chrome at home on WIndows 8. I also tried in IE 10.

      Fresh faces are always great, as long as you're not a troll anyway! ;) welcome aboard!

      I just tried a couple of them in Win7/Chrome, and they worked fine for me (the ones that take you to pages etc anyway - ie privacy,profile etc)
      Do you have other key combos defined in your browser already that might be overriding them?
