Emoticons are a great way to communicate emotions without using words. They can be used in text messages, emails, and even social media posts.
Emoticons are a bit like showing your work in math class—but who doesn’t love a good ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ or (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻? They help break the ice in awkward moments, show that you’re paying attention in a group chat,
and generally help make the internet a more pleasant place.
