    I never bothered to find out when we changed format on the B&B.  Now I think I would like to be able and insert them once in a while.  Can someone give me the instructions please?  Thanks!

    Smiley on Facebook

    Smiley faces are a great way to express yourself on Facebook. Add a little personality to your messages, make sure readers understand that you’re being sarcastic, or express amusement over a friend’s joke. Whether you’re feeling elated, overjoyed, goofy or downright jolly, express it with a digital smile. Smiley faces dress up and animate ideas, give readers something to look at other than text, and are easy to make with a few easy keystrokes. Have a question?

    Instructions

    1

    Write a sentence to accompany your smiley face. The best place for a smiley face is near an expression of happiness, next to a funny story, or by a joke.
    2

    Choose the smiley face that you want to use from the following options:
    Happy :) – Colon followed by a parentheses
    Very happy =) – Equals sign followed by a parentheses
    Grinning :D – Colon followed by an uppercase “D”
    Cat smiling ^_^ – Shift and press six, underscore, Shift and press six
    Wink smile ;) – Semicolon followed by a parentheses
    Goofy smile 8) – Eight followed by a parentheses
    Tongue sticking out :p – Colon followed by a lowercase “p”
    Smiling devil 3:) – Three followed by a colon and parentheses
    Smiling angel 0:) – Zero followed by a colon and parentheses
    3

    Insert the smiley face two spaces behind the period following the appropriate sentence. Here is an example of how to incorporate a smiley face into text naturally: “I had the best time at the fair. :) All my friends showed up.”
    4

    Add a nose to any of the smiley faces by inserting a dash in between the eyes and mouth, modifying the smiley face to look like the following examples:
    Happy :-)
    Very happy =-)
    Grinning :-D
    Wink smile ;-)
    Goofy smile 8-) Tongue sticking out :-p
    Smiling devil 3:-)
    Smiling angel 0:-)
    5

    Enter the symbols to show a variety of other emotions as well. For example placing a less than sign (<) prior to the numeric three (3) will allow you create the symbol of heart (<3) and similarly placing a slash (/) between < and 3 will denote broken heart (</3).

    Try these…

    Go to Community Help….Click on Jill’s name……. click on Topics Started…..go to page 4…..open Using Emoticons(Smileys) and then click on the link Jill posted. I enlarged it and made a copy that I keep next to our computer. Hope this helps :-) Use the “full text” method listed.

    Thanks for giving Stella a hand, everyone. I’ve been told that we won’t be getting the “smileys” toolbar back, so it might be a good idea to bookmark this link (or even print it out and keep it by your computer).
