Using the keyboard instead of the mouse

There are two types of people in this world – keyboard lovers and mouse lovers, and usually, keyboard lovers are mouse haters and vice versa. Each camp believes that their method is the most efficient, and often seek shortcuts to make their personal method even more efficient, which is why keyboard shortcuts are so popular, as are sites that eliminate as many clicks as possible. Productivity is the name of the game these days.

Meanwhile, Facebook has many built in shortcuts that most users don’t know about, and for anyone that finds the mouse to be inefficient, there are dozens of tricks on Facebook that any keyboard lover will love, saving those precious milliseconds it takes to remove your hand from the keyboard to click the mouse (which all add up, mind you). In response, My Clever Agency, a full service marketing firm, has created a handy cheat sheet that not only outlines shortcuts, but highlights other tricks like inserting emoticons (believe it or not, one of the most common non-work questions we get is “how do I do that heart symbol on Facebook?”).

My Clever Agency notes that All the shortcuts work different in browsers, so make sure to follow the small steps below:
