If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to save time on social media tasks. With as many social sites as we are all on these days, even saving a few minutes here and there makes a big difference. For some reason, I haven’t learned any social media keyboard shortcuts over the years, but that is going to change after today. Like this very useful infographic states, you’ll “save yourself loads of time every day by speeding up your social network browsing with these lightning fast keyboard shortcuts.”
The team over at setupablogtoday.com put together this valuable graphic below, which includes the 2015 keyboard shortcuts for Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr and Google+. One of the commenters on their article provides another valuable tidbit:
On Twitter, you can click the little profile icon in the top navigation bar and find a “Keyboard Shortcuts” link between Help and Settings. With Facebook it’s a little harder. You find the little downward-pointing caret in the top navigation bar (the one next to the Privacy Shortcuts padlock icon) and then click on Help. Then, when the search box pops up, type “keyboard” and follow the link.
The thing about keyboard shortcuts is that until you can memorize them, they’re easy to forget. For that reason, I recommend printing this infographic and keeping it handy. That’s what I’m going to do. I’m sure before long they’ll be second nature.

Please let us know in the comment section below which keyboard shortcuts you find to be the most useful. When I scan through this list, I know there will definitely be some that I use more than others. Enjoy!
