Facebook Revamps Messages Feature and Adds Keyboard Shortcuts

Today Facebook introduced improved features and a dramatically different look for Messages. A new side-by-side layout allows users to click recent messages on the left to see conversations to the right. Users can also "bring conversations to life" with multiple photos and emoticons.

The social network also made search and navigation easier. Now users can search by a sender's name or keyword from the main messages view. Further, Facebook has added keyboard commands. A full list of available shortcuts can be accessed by typing Alt-Q on a PC or Control-Q on a Mac (note: do not mistake for Command-Q, which will quit your web browser).
