There are a lot of Facebook smileys available to use in chat on the world's biggest social network, but do you know which ones are the most popular or the coolest? Here we will share with you the most amazing and funniest Facebook smilies, and why they appear in this list. It is difficult to imagine how many people ever day use Facebook chat, but the developers recently gave some information about how many messages were passed through their servers every day.
The answer? Close to a billion. Can you imagine how many of those billion messages include a little smiley or an icon saying how the person feels? Quite a lot! So sit back and enjoy the list – and if you don't agree with any of these answers, please let us know in the comments!
Facebook emotion number five – the robot
If you were born in the 1980s, which a lot of Facebook users were, then you can probably relate to how important the robot was in that time period. The world was full of possibilities and opportunities related to mechanics and electronics. Computers came from the realm of dreams right into the home – the PC was born and suddenly people realised that robots were going to become part of the world. The robot Facebook smiley is one which pays homage to the time when people dared to dream, and also is a nice reference to Short Circuit, one of the best movies of all time.
Facebook emote number four – the devil
If you are a devil on the inside, then you know exactly why this emoticon is one of the most used on Facebook chat . Without a doubt, more people have claimed to be a naughty little devil than used the angel emoticon – because it's easier to justify being a devil (especially if you're a girl who has been a little bit naughty recently). The devil is not always evil, but sometimes just a little bit naughty!
Facebook smilies number three – an angel
Just like the devil, the angel emote tries to show people what you're really like. Just because people think you're a devil, doesn't mean it's true! Some people send this angel to their friends to let them know that what they've seen in their newly tagged photos on the site isn't the REAL them...and some send it to their boyfriends to remind them not to look at the other dirty girls when they go out. If it helps, well...that's hard to say.
Facebook emoticon number two – Pacman
Back to the 1980s, and the most succesful and the most fun coin operated video game was certainly Pac-Man. The little yellow face with the big appetite and the need to save his girlfriend from the evil ghosts and ghouls certainly helped hundreds of thousands of people to waste large amounts of money during that time period, and now you can do it all again using Facebook chat and the Pacman smiley!
Facebook smiley number one – The smile!
The most popular smiley on Facebook is without a doubt, the regular, general, boring, usual one...the smile! Of course, it's none of those things, but what it really is is a new symbol in the world. The Facebook smiley face is one which will transcend the software that it's used on – it's a new wave of expression which allows people to say what they're really thinking or feeling – and you can use it to by just typin two simple characters! :)
