You use Ctrl-X to cut and Ctrl-V to paste. You may even use Ctrl-P to print. But how often are you using Ctrl-Alt-M to draft a new Facebook message? Or G-R to see your Twitter mentions?

Courtesy of social media analytics firm Quintly, now you can zip through your social media inboxes a little bit quicker (and with less wear and tear on your mouse).

Let me know what you think about these. Also curious to know if anyone has played the snake game on YouTube…

I aspire to give people something to think about rather than tell them what to do. My favorite Google Alert is "social media research," I am increasingly compelled by Gen Z, and I appreciate good writers agnostic of where they write. At one time I was Kred's 12th most influential social media blogger and Klout's most influential person on the topic of David Hasselhoff. Transplant from Seattle living in Cincinnati. Haven't entirely adopted the local sports teams yet.

DIGGIN’ these shortcuts!

I couldn’t get the Facebook ones to work; maybe it’s my browser. But I used the Twitter commands all in just a few seconds. Yes, I use Ctrl + Z to “undo”, and a whole lot of Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V. NOW I’m a freakin Twitter wizard. A Twizzard. I shared and favorited this post waaaaay fast with the shortcuts I got from this quick infographic.

Thanks for the post, Jim. Still buzzing from that “I learned a cool new thing” high.

Keep Stepping,
