Big List of Emoticons

An emoticon is a textual expression of the face representing the writer's mood or facial expression. Emoticons are used to display the receiver of the message about the temperament of a person and the statement. It can improve the conveyance of the message and also gives more meaningful expression to the message than just by simple interpretation of the plain text.

The origin of emoticons goes back when the Telegraphic Review and Operators Guide documented the use of the number 73 in Morse code to express "love and kisses," which was later reduced to the formal "best regards."

These are created by a complex character pattern or combination of the electronic keyboard characters. It is increasingly being used in email, SMS, status message, social networking sites, web forums, instant messengers, and online games. This way of expression oneself is increasingly becoming popular through the use of the interactive electronic media.

An emoticon represents an expressing face, you can notice it if you tip your head to the left and look at it again. The colon represents the eyes, the dash represents the nose, and the right parenthesis represent the mouth. Emoticons have expanded beyond simple cartoon facial expressions to include a variety of still or moving images called smileys, . Some of these graphical emoticons do not actually represent faces or emotions, such as an "emoticon" showing a guitar might be used to represent music. Further, some instant messaging software is designed to play a sound upon receiving certain emoticons.

These little characters are a great way to spice up your IM conversations and status messages to show your friends how you feel. Select them from the emoticon menu or type the keyboard shortcuts directly into your status message. Here there is a list of emoticons that are commonly used for message transmission.
