What is an example of emoticons?
For most Western style facial expression emoticons, a colon is used for the eyes (or a semicolon for winking eyes). Sometimes a dash is added for the nose. Various letters are used for mouth shapes. Happy face :) :-) Sad face :( :-( Winking ;) ;-) Surprise :o :O :0 :-o :-O :-0 Angry >:( >:-( Laughing :D :-D Confused :/ :-/ Tongue out :P :-P While Western emoticons are faces on their side, Chinese (Eastern) emoticons usually have the face upright. Arrowheads are used for eyes (or a semicolon for crying), and underscores are used for mouths. Japanese (2channel) emoticons are most directly related to ASCII art and often take up several lines to complete a full face.
