    Emoticons is very prevalent in the world we live in today, especially amongst social engagements .There are thousands of emoticon apps so we can express our facial and mood expressions.

    There are a limited amount of emoticons that can be used in the forums, but I don't think they should be enabled for use in Hubs... it would make them look cheap.

      Not in d hub itself fat fred but in the comments for the hub like lol , rotflol etc sometimes we comment at a funny hub and an emoticon would be ideal

    I would like the emoticons if they were cute and SIMPLE. I think lots of the ones used on websites look awful and I purposely use symbols that don't turn into emoticons.

    I agree, Lady.  They would be used in the comments sections in hubs.  I think it's a good idea, with certain limitations. :-)

    I would rather not see emoticons on HubPages. Even in the comment section they would take away from the discussion of the hubs.

      Ok Eric that is your view no one said there won't be discussion because it will be dumb just to put this smile in the comment box . I am speaking of adding and emoticon along with your comment to lay more emphasis on your mood towards what you read.

    The problem with emoticons is that they can be easily abused.

    And again, since there are so many of them, that means a very long list of characters and symbols to be crammed.

    Unless hubpages will incorporate just a few of them.

    Which in that case, defeats the purpose of expressing how you feel.
