Facebook have some built-in shortcut keys for navigating around the site using the keyboard. Here is a collection of available shortcuts for Facebook Power Users. The shortcuts differ slightly for Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome.

These shortcuts work best in Chrome, and maybe Opera and Safari. In Firefox, you’ll need to add a Shift key to the combination, so as not to trigger Firefox’s own Alt-centered operations, on Internet Explorer, you’ll have to press Enter after hitting each combination and if you’re using a Mac, you’ll need to use Ctrl+Opt instead of Alt.
