An Emoticon (or Smiley) is a sequence of ordinary characters you can find on any computer keyboard. Nowadays emoticons are mainly used in Whatsapp, Email, Chat, SMS and even in written communication.


The most popular emoticons are the smiling faces (smileys or smilies) that people use to say “don’t take what I just wrote too seriously”.
