Facebook: Use Keyboard Commands for Quick Navigation
If you want to navigate Facebook quickly, then keyboard commands are definitely the way to go. These will save you mouseclicks in doing day-to-day tasks as well as changing your settings.
Go to Facebook and login to your account and then use the following commands (use the number keys on the keyboard and not the numberpad):
