    Do smiley faces make the world better?

    I use smilies to show how I'm feeling.  Body language is a vital part of communication that can't be seen in text.  Adding a smiley helps to show what a person means in my opinion.

    Yes, many people seem to immediately assume sarcasm when reading an online post. The smiley face is the standard indicator used to assure the reader that that is not the intention.

    I don't know whether smilies make the world a better place for everyone, but they do for me smile  I use them in replies to comments or questions, but I don't use them in hubs, because they don't usually seem appropriate.  I think it's good to practise expressing yourself without the aid of smilies, to find a way of writing the smile in there, if you know what I mean?  I think it can be done.  But I do like them, nonetheless, and I think they have their place. 

    On the other hand, some people hate them and get rather vocal and angry about the use of them.  Each to their own is all I can say about that.  It's a matter of personal taste I suppose.
