Smiley faces are a great way to express yourself on Facebook. Add a little personality to your messages, make sure readers understand that you're being sarcastic, or express amusement over a friend's joke. Whether you're feeling elated, overjoyed, goofy or downright jolly, express it with a digital smile. Smiley faces dress up and animate ideas, give readers something to look at other than text, and are easy to make with a few easy keystrokes.
1. Write a sentence to accompany your smiley face. The best place for a smiley face is near an expression of happiness, next to a funny story, or by a joke.
2. Choose the smiley face that you want to use from the following options:
Happy :) - Colon followed by a parentheses
Very happy =) - Equals sign followed by a parentheses
Grinning :D - Colon followed by an uppercase "D"
Cat smiling ^_^ - Shift and press six, underscore, Shift and press six
Wink smile ;) - Semicolon followed by a parentheses
Goofy smile 8) - Eight followed by a parentheses
Tongue sticking out :p - Colon followed by a lowercase "p"
Smiling devil 3:) - Three followed by a colon and parentheses
Smiling angel 0:) - Zero followed by a colon and parentheses
3. Insert the smiley face two spaces behind the period following the appropriate sentence. Here is an example of how to incorporate a smiley face into text naturally: "I had the best time at the fair. :) All my friends showed up."
4. Add a nose to any of the smiley faces by inserting a dash in between the eyes and mouth, modifying the smiley face to look like the following examples:
Very happy =-)
Wink smile ;-)
Goofy smile 8-)
Tongue sticking out :-p
Smiling devil 3:-)
Smiling angel 0:-)
Enter two spaces after the smiley face and before beginning the next sentence.
