Facebook chat is currently one of the most, if not the most, popular ways of communication with your friends and family ‘live’ that there is. Often your words can tell them how you feel about them – your thoughts and wishes, but sometimes only a Facebook chat emoticon will do to let them know you are happy, sad, having crazy fun or completely bored.
We have seen that Facebook chat offers us many different options with regard which smileys and emotes we can use in our chats, but have you ever thought about which emotion or smilie is the best one? Which emoticon on Facebook do more people use than any other, do people send to only the people that they love or admire? Right now we’re going to run through the list of the five most popular icons for Facebook, and then you can weigh-in on the debate as to whether you agree or disagree with them!
The top 5 Facebook chat emoticons
Facebook smiley number 5 – Angel emote
A famous singer once said that women were like angels, and he was right. The angel emoticon is easily one of the top five, just because of the huge number of different messages that the beautifu llittle white princess can send. Boyfriends send it to their lovers to tell them that they still think they are pure, girlfriends send them to their lovers to try to assure them that they’re not lying (even when they probably are) – people even send them to their family members. It’s purity, innocence and chastity – the perfect smiley!
Facebook emotion number 4 – The devil symbol
Every coin, of course, has two sides, and the angel’s other side is the devil chat emoticon. The devil looks much cooler than his ‘holier than thou’ counterpart, and he is not afraid to show the user’s true emotions in Facebook chat. Done a bad thing? Let people know about it. Want to tell someone that you really think they’re a naughty person? Send this smiley and they’ll realise that you’re onto them!
Facebook chat emoticon number 3 – Pacman
Back in the 1980′s, the biggest video game star was not Ryu, Ken or even Super Mario – it was a little yellow faced man who ran around eating ghosts and trying to save his girlfriend from the evil clutches of various empires – he was Pacman! This game, which began in the arcardes, became a worldwide hit thanks to its addictive nature and fun gameplay – and now you can use a pacman emoticon in Facebook chat! Cool!
Facebook smilie number 2 – The big smile
Nothing says you’re happy like the big smile emoticon for Facebook. It’s a timeless classic, which lets the user know that inside you are so happy and enjoying life. This is the most important feeling you can have!
FB icon number 1 – The robot
Nobody can compete with the robot emoticon on Facebook for the title of ‘coolest ever’. His skin is grey, and it seems that he doesn’t show much emotion himself, but nothing encapsulates the art of being on the internet than this guy. He also can be used as an alternative to the standard ‘huh’ emoticon which people often use to try to figure out what the hell someone just said. Use this one in your chats today and see how people react!
