Do you miss emoticons in HubPages?
Emoticons have invaded our lives without us realizing it. I don't find them in hubpages. How are you coping in their absence?
No, I think emoticons are great for chat environments and places like facebook. http://czczcz.hubpages.com/hub/Emoticon … aging-Chat I dont think we need them here in Hubpages they are not what I would consider help create quality content.
I think that emoticons can be cute when used in social networking or texting. But HubPages is not the place for them! As HubPages struggles for quality content, we still see people using texting abbreviations in hubs and in hub comments when they should be using proper English spelling and grammar. If they were available, emoticons would just be one more unnecessary shortcut.
Well, I'm still living and breathing, and I'm pretty certain the sun will still be somewhere in the sky tomorrow, and everytthing is right with the universe, so their abscence hasn't had any effect on my life.
They're pathetic little things really, designed for those people who have problems with commas, to show inflection, or who like to do a lot of 'loling', or 'rofling'.
I tend to find emoticons irritating so I'm glad they're rarely found in Hubs!!
Yes, I do !! I guess, the use of emoticons @ hubpages will make it more interactive....

Hi, I'm fairly new here so you'll have to forgive me if my question appears somewhat naive. I was hoping someone could tell me, if a hubber reaches, lets say, 500 hubs, will these hubs continue to bring in an income...
