Feeling Out Emoticons

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 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 and change the emoticon at the end.  How does this change the meaning of the message?
