Introduction to
Smileys, Faces and Emoticons

When we talk to people face-to-face, our body language, the tone of our voice and our facial expressions give great meaning to what we say. Smileys (also called emoticons) are a way of trying to convey the little emotional touches in your written communications on the Internet that you get from people's facial expressions in face-to-face conversations. You can personalize your written messages by using these smileys or emoticons. You create smileys by typing characters from your keyboard.

To help someone knows you are "just kidding", add a :) to the end of the sentence. If you only see this as a colon and parenthesis, then try tilting your head to the left. See the Smiling Face now?? Pretty kewl, huh? :-)

Over time people have come up with all kinda of cute little Smileys to represent many different things. Feelings, actions, descriptions, items and even people! Here is a listing of the 'Most Popular' Smiley Faces and Emoticons, (and a few rather obscure ones too!).
