What are emoticons?

emoticons

One of the major features of this software includes sending files and "instant messages" online, the same as with other chat applications like MSN and Yahoo Messenger. You can also express yourself through the wide variety of emoticons available. When words are not enough to express what you truly feel, then there are emoticons to do all the talking for you. With emoticons, you can get to express what you feel, what you think and what you want to express visually that words cannot express.

Questions and Answers

I am looking for a Skype emoticon for sorry/apology?

I'd like something that isn't embarrassed, but still a respectful apology.

The symbol for a broken heart is (you), which can be added to (worry) or (crying). Either of these would convey an apology. If the apology is to a business colleague, you could just use (worry) or (doh). Type them into a random Skype message to see what they look like before you send them though.

Is there Skype emoticon for party?

I want to have a Skype emoticon so I can party!

The emoticon you want can be found by simply typing (party). Include the parenthesis when you type it into Skype. However, if you prefer something a little more Wayne's World style, you may want to try (rock), which will give the famous 'rock' hand symbol.
