An emoticon, etymologically a portmanteau of emotion and icon, is a metacommunicative pictorial representation of a facial expression that, in the absence of body language and prosody, serves to draw a receiver’s attention to the tenor or temper of a sender’s nominal non-verbal communication, changing and improving its usually distinguished as a 3-5 character piece — usually by means of punctuation marks (though it can include numbers and letters) — a person’s feelings or mood, though as emoticons have become more popular, some devices have provided stylized pictures that do not use punctuation.

In Japan, users have worked out emoticons (text-based “smiley faces”) adapted to their culture. According to The New York Times on August 12 1996, the Japanese use emoticons even more than Westerners. Because their PC keyboards handle the two-byte characters of Kanji, users can choose between single- and double-byte versions of certain characters such as underscore characters, allowing a further degree of expression.

What is the difference between emoticons and emojis?
– emoji are a potentially limitless set of pictorial symbols used for various purposes, including but not limited to expressing emotions, substituting for words, and so on.
– emoticons come in two flavours: text and image. Text emoticons are the original version. Images are a more recent version, and most text emoticons have a pictorial version. Image emoticons are de facto emoji. Specifically, they are the subset of emoji used for expressing emotions. Text emoticons may thus be considered precursors of emoji, which have nonetheless developed in their own way and remain relevant.
