Since the invention of instant messaging, communication has evolved with the ability to chat instantly using smileys and emoticons. Smileys add life to messages sent on the computer. They depict the feeling the sender has through symbols and add fun to the message. One can enhance their IM experience using the smileys available.
With Facebook being so popular in the social media world they would have to have their own custom smileys to use. A lot of people have accounts on Facebook. Social networking really took off with its web presence. MySpace is cool, but Facebook has something on it, and who knows maybe it’s the smileys.
Say you’re having a frustrating day and need to show how you feel in chat, the squinty eyes or angry emoticon are useful. Maybe you just misplaced your cell phone or someone stole your purse. This calls for a sad smiley. The kiss smiley along with “muah” allows you to send love and affection over the Internet to that special someone. Even the Facebook founder has an emoticon especially made of him.
When at a loss for words, depend on the smiley faces specifically made for Facebook.com. There are different reasons why we lose our words and need an emoticon instead. Sometimes it’s better not to say anything because your words can get you in trouble or the timing is bad. Also some people can show how they feel better than they can say it. If you’re too busy or sad to type everything out the smileys come in handy as well. Some social media users simply don’t like to type too much which can be odd since they are involved in social media.
A few common smileys include the shark, frown, curly lips, surprised, shark, angel and sunglasses. When upset about something the upset smiley is used. If you are worried about your pup sick at the vet, it is also appropriate to use. If you’re trying to hint at being naughty use the tongue. These little expressions add some flavor to your instant messaging experience.
