Emoticon And Their Meaning

On the Internet especially in e-mail, chatting, and forum message groups, an Emoticon (sometimes referred to as a "Smiley") is a short sequence of keyboard letters and symbols, usually emulating a facial expression, expressing a feeling that supplements the message. Often a smile is represented with a basic smiley :-). The colon represents the eyes, the hyphen is for the nose, and the parenthesis for the mouth. Therefore, I thought that I would write a technical brief listing the most commonly used ones for you.
