I am interested in all things Entertainment, including style, movies, celebrities and TV, action, comedies and sci-fi and even video games.

I guess we all have different motives for using Facebook: For pleasure and fun or business and money.

So, I guess this information here is meant for those who like to have fun with Facebook. But you could always mix business with pleasure. At least, I've always found it profitable.

There are basic emoticons used on Facebook that many experienced users are familiar with. There are some that work just in chat and messaging but not in comments. Near the end I'll cover some of the emoticons you can use in chat, messaging and comments.

First I'd like to cover some more specialized emoticons.

Doctor Who Emoticons for Facebook Chat Messaging

This probably sounds like gibberish to those who don't watch the show. But those who watch the show know what I'm talking about. And there are some cool emoticons straight from Doctor Who that you can use in Facebook chat.

So, to add a little fun to your Doctor Who chatting, you can use some of these Doctor Who emoticons.

These are generally fun and you'll have to choose which situations to throw them up in chat. I guess they're a bit sophisticated in a way, you could be talking about stopping at Mickey D's for some fast food after you have coffee and pizza because she broke your heart. I don't know. I guess that's sophisticated.

I don't know, but there seems to be one for every occasion; for when you're having cake or coffee; for when your heart's broken or when you're falling in love; for when you want junk food...Oh, you get the idea!

Facebook Profiles and Logos

Any Facebook Profile can become an emoticon. If you use double brackets on each end of your profile user name, you can create an emoticon of your profile picture in Facebook chat and message.

Consequently, you can also get a lot of logos using this method. Experiment with a few major companies. You can start with Facebook, then you can try Firefox and Android; you can even try McDonalds. See what happens.

Using the Alt Key to Make Emoticons

Turns out if you hold down the Alt key on your keyboard and then hit a number, you'll get an emoticon. Go ahead and try it! Hold down the Alt button and then hit the number 1. Then try it with 2, then 3 and so on. It's good fun.

The Alphabet in Facebook Emoticons

Turns out you can also turn each letter of the alphabet into emoticons. I kid you not!

Check them out here.

So there you have it. Surprise your friends, have a little fun and socialize the fun way; on the Internet, on social media, of course.

      Hi, Tess. These emoticons will work in messaging, chat and comments. Not in a regular status update.
