Where do we stand on Emoticons/Emojis?


(C) #1

Annoying? Helpful? Childish?

I find overuse a little annoying, but sometimes one can really help convey the feeling behind the post. Thoughts?

I kinda’ like them. Since I can’t sense a poster’s tone of voice, I find them helpful.

Iz heart them.

:+1: I like them, as long as they aren’t used to excess.

Like meat, high heels and Facebook, emoticons are not for me. But they’re fine for other people. No judgments.


#7

In person facial expression and tone can convey as much as the words spoken. A thoughtfully used emoticon can help written words be understood in the spirit you intended.

Pretty much sums up how I feel too - though, to be clear, I’d spend a day in high heels posting emojis on Facebook before I’d give up meat.
