Notice: This article is now outdated and the smileys may not work anymore!
Facebook is the ultimate social tool and with it comes the need to express ourselves beyond text. That’s where smileys (emoticons) come into play and you’ve probably used the standard set of smileys that you can see in the Facebook chat smiley list, but did you know that there are emoticons that aren’t in that list? Not only does Facebook have some hidden built-in emoticons, but since they have implemented the ability for users to virtually create their own using page/profile pictures, people have built some quite impressive (and big) smileys.
