(Popular Science)   With the help of a psychology professor and a Pixar illustrator, Facebook is trying to make our messages a little more emotional. Will someone please tell them to stop before the Emoticon Apocalypse begins?   (popsci.com) divider line 21

Yes because animated emoticons add so much civility and excitement to the online forums that have them.

What they need is for is to be able to post with different profile pictures so we can choose expressions that match our tone.

Million-dollar idea:

Someone invent a Facebook app that allows you to capture your own face, JibJab style, to use as an emoticon with assignable values (i.e. angry, grateful, gotta poop, whatever you want it be...).

This will get rid of all the goddamn yellow pac-man heads once and for all...

I only have one reaction face, because it's pretty much my reaction to everything.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: Wonder how much Facebook paid to have somebody draw smiley faces for them?

And sparkles.
Don't forget sparkles.
Nothing says, CUTE, PATRIOTIC, VAMPIRE, MOM, LOVE, PUPPIES, RAINBOWS, UNICORNS, etc, without sparkles.

'More Emoji' is an actual Windows 8.1 feature.

Sarcasm is denoted by ending the sentence with a period.
