One of the most popular emoticons is :-), which as you can see looks like a smiley face tipped to the side.  It is safe to say that everyday, millions of people use this emoticon when they are communicating with others via email, instant messenger, etc.  On the other side of things a :-( is means to show a frown, or discontent.

Using emoticons is much better than having to try and explain what you are feeling.  This also allow you to show how you are feeling instead of trying to search for a way to type it out.  Although the internet has opened up a whole new way to communicate, along with it are some inherent problems such as showing emotion.
