The Facebook Chat Emoticons Have Evolved
Use the Facebook smileys and emoticons while reconnecting with friends and family on the most popular social networking site online. Emoticon smileys can be used in Facebook chat conversations. Each emoticon appears by writing the shortcut into the chat box. Here's how to do it:
1. Go to any profile, fan page, or event that you want to use as an emoticon.
2. Look at the URL; find the username or profile ID at the end of the URL such such as http://www.facebook.com/profile ID
3. Place that name or number in double brackets like [[profile ID]]
4. Enter that into a Facebook Chat or Message field. When you send it, the bracketed number or letters will appear as that person, fan page, or event’s current profile picture.
