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…

    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,
