Smileys Facebook - Emoticons Facebook

Updated on May 11, 2011

New Emotions for Facebook

You may have noticed over the last week or so that Facebook have introduced a new set of 'Blue' Smileys for Facebook status updates, I have already discussed cool Facebook statuses in another hub of mine but here I wanted to talk about some other added Smileys you can use with your Facebook login.

My personal opinion of the new Facebook smileys is that they kind of spoil the slick and simplistic image that we have come to associate with the website. There were already enough applications and surveys and adding more is making Facebook more like MyYearbook everyday, in fact if this makes more teenagers aged 12-17 interested in social networking, Facebook may lose its appeal to the online businesses.

New Facebook Smiley Faces

Above we can see the new Facebook blue smiley faces directly under the update status box on my profile, however they have also appeared larger on my news feed page. The problem I have had so far is that they aren't always available  to use, sometimes I can see them and other times I can't. Perhaps they are still being phased in by Facebook programmers because I also had an hours delay before it was actually posted to my wall.

I am not sure how you would actually type the icons above using your keyboard but I have seen people copy and paste them into the about me section of their Facebook profile. Some other neat tricks you can do while chatting on Facebook are mentioned below.

Maybe these are quite common but I know with 1000's of people signing up to Facebook everyday that there will still be a few people who need to be made aware of these Facebook emotes to enhance their chatting experience.

The black smilies in the picture above are part of a plugin you can download called Facemoods, you can search for it on Google and download it to your computer, it also posts great smileys on your wall.

I didn't know that when you type the combination of symbols posted below that they actually come up with an icon for a Facebook smiley in the chat function.
