SharePoint 2013 Newsfeed Tip of the Day

When starting a conversation or sharing news from your Newsfeed, hitting enter on your keyboard posts the update instead of inserting a line between 2 sentences.  This can get very annoying when you’re trying to post a neat conversation.

Click SHIFT + ENTER to make line breaks. (This works in Facebook too by the way when replying to posts).
