How to Text Emoticons

Emoticons are used in text messages to convey feelings of love, anger, silliness, happiness, sadness and just about any other emotion you might feel. Emoticons often accompany text in text messages, however you may also send them on your own. When you are including emoticons in text messages, the emoticons are built by using text to look like the emotions you are feeling. Of course, you have to turn your head sideways to see this.
