Think about how many times you’ve added a ;) to be sure the recipient understood that you weren’t totally serious. Would you have sent the same text/email if you couldn’t add the wink? Probably not.
I’ve put together an assortment of 14 emoticon cards with their definition on the back. They’re a great way to discuss social cues because they break down facial expressions into their most salient elements. They’re also a great way to generate discussions on feelings and emotions. Or put together a number of sentences (I've included 10 to get you started) and change the emoticon at the end. How does this change the meaning of the message?
