Keyboard Shortcuts for Facebook

Facebook is lthe largest social networking site in the world. Most of us spent hours of our time in Facebook with our friends. The advantage of Facebook is it simplicity and easy to use interface yet it is packed with many features too.

When we keep working on a same software for a long time, we will be learning the keyboard  shortcuts for that software and we will increase our speed with which we work with the application. The same logic goes here, Facebook too has keyboard shortcuts with which you can use its interface with ease.
