  1. Thanks, Jimmy! (^_^ )w

    These are great examples!

    We can see that people have invested a lot of time and energy into making these many different kinds of emoticons. Therefore, it’s easy to see how much value is placed on nonverbal communication by humans. Perhaps, more emoticon usage in a culture means that the culture places more value on non-verbal communication? What do you think?

  2. These are easy to show your emotions in the Internet. Actually, these funny pictures (or called AA graphics) were originally from a famous Japan forum called “2ch.” Japanese made more crazy AAs in the Internet.
