Facebook– Essential Missing Functionality

For the world’s leading social networking site, these missing features are inexcusable:

  1. Unable to edit status updates (there’s a trick that can be used on updates containing images – but not on regular, non-image updates).
  2. ‘Send’ button (e.g. while messaging someone) – is not keyboard accessible (there is no key you can press to ‘Send’ the message. No ‘Enter’, Shift Enter etc. Nothing.
    That’s pretty primitive. It is only ‘mouse clickable’. A lot of users cannot use mice (RSI injuries etc.) – what are they to do?

I’d like to keep updating this list – let me know of your gripe ( s ) with FB functionality.
