Unofficial Smiley Dictionary

Author: 
Nina Baker

I have noticed that when we all send and receive only typed words that we are missing the human connection in conversations, our body language and facial expressions. So much of what I say, how I say it, and when I adjust the conversation is based on the nonverbal reactions I get from those who listen to me. So..... I have found a fun list of smileys. :-)

A smiley is a little face that is typed as a part of the sentence :-) (tilt head to the left to clarify) :-) Do you see it? Many a computer guru have devoted weeks - months - even years to figuring out all these useful little faces ,-> (wink)
