Facebook emoticons are increasingly getting popular among the Gen X and Y. Whether you are a cool dude or a cute guy, a “don’t mess with me” type or follow an “all are welcome” policy, or are currently having a happy or sad mood, facebook smileys are the one and only way of expressing them all. If you are against the idea of sharing your feelings and want to keep an air of reserve around you, the robot is the coolest option for you. It will not let anyone guess what’s there in your mind. Want to bite someone off, but can’t do that publicly? Send the shark to show your fierce side.
On the reverse, send the penguin if you want to get the “soooo cute” from someone. But the one that rises above all these straight forward Facebook smiley emoticons is the putnam. Show your attitude in the Chris Putnam way, the chief designer of facebook. It is the only smiley that bears a human face. Play with emotions with the help of Facebook emoticons – insert the robot by :|], the putnam by :putnam:, the shark by ^^^ and the penguin by <('').
