Navigate Your Facebook News Feed With These Four Keyboard Shortcuts

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!

    None of these work for me. Do they not work in firefox or am I doing something wrong?

    Edit: I clicked on the link provided then went back to fb and now everything works?

    I swear it didn't before!!
