Emoticons are used to show others how you feel while messaging. They are emotional graphics which can be used to express how you feel when words are not enough.

Here’s a list of all the emoticons available in MSN Messenger. You can use them in your nicknames or during chatting with your friends. These are just the default ones that come with MSN/Windows Live Messenger, but if you want more, you’ll have to wait for my next post.

In my next post, I’ll be explaining how you can install more emoticons, and form where you can get them. Trust me, it’s very easy and you can turn each letter of yours into an emoticon itself :D . So, I’m sure you are going to enjoy that upcoming post.
