Save the Emoticons!

Save the emoticons! Say yest to emoticons!

There is a trend in the internet saying that too many emoticons in a conversation can only betrade a lack of trust, lack of imagination and we should get rid of all the emoticons... I totaly disagree with this.

The emoticons have their role, their sense in life and they replace other things that a virtual conversation just can't have. Take a look at the clip below and think about it:

Who invented Emoticons?
Do you remember the first emoticon? Kabonfootprint does. That little string of three characters that when you twist your head on the side it looks like a smiling face. ;-)

It seems that there was an inventor of this "smiley" character set - Professor Scott E Fahlman who first used the characters in an e-mail on September the 19th, 1982, at 11:42 am. He wanted to use these emoticons as "joke markers" but in time, they evolved and today we have the ability to express a wide variety of emotions.

Cool Emoticons

I've heard that some cigar sellers are negotiating with YM to develop some new avatars and emoticons with some cool smileys, Texan faces like the famous JR, smoking different brands of cigars like Torano or Cuba Aliados. It seems that the discussions are stuck at this moment because of financial reasons but it seems that they will restart them.

Car Emoticons and Avatars

Every boy and lots of girls like powerful vehicles, tuned cars and motorcycles. As far as I know there are not "official" avatars or smileys for any of the big messengers... This could be a nice idea.

Emoticons for Girls

Emoticons for girls - I think they would have a huge success since almost half of the messengers are used by girls. Fashion Emoticons, Flowers Smiles, Makeup Faces and other girlie stuff could be nice and welcome.

Smoking Emoticons

I don't know if it's OK for the childes, but I think some nice smoking faces would be funny to have in the yahoo emoticons list. Some big smile with a Cuban cigar in his mouth must be very funny...
