Navigate your Facebook News Feed with keyboard shortcuts

Facebook doesn't have a lot of keyboard shortcuts, but the few that are available are useful, especially the News Feed navigation shortcuts.


Facebook doesn't have a large collection of keyboard shortcuts and many of them require browser-specific modifiers. Still, if you spend a lot of time in Facebook, using the keyboard shortcuts can be time-savers. The News Feed navigation shortcuts in particular, are convenient and easy to remember because they work the same in every Web browser (no modifier required).

  • To scroll through your News Feed, just use j to scroll down and k to scroll up.
  • To comment on the selected story from your News Feed, use c.
  • To like or unlike a selected story, use l.

Keep in mind that when you select a story, the left border of the story's location will darken to let you know where you are.
