  • BBOS Wants To Know, What's Your Favorite BBM Emoticon?


    Smileys have been around for a very long time, some believe the earliest examples date back to the 1930s even. Over time, they've evolved from "smiley faces" to "emoticons" (or "emojis" if you use an iOS device) and have been incorporated into pretty much every medium and instant messaging platform to date, including our very beloved BBM.

    If you use BBM a lot, you've probably used a few of the above pictured emoticons. Whether it's been to show how happy, mad, or sad you were, these emoticons have really become part of the way we communicate in general. Some, like myself that use emoticons a ton, believe the addition or lack of an emoticon in certain situations can completely change the tone of what is being said.
    We all have a favorite emoticon or two as well. My personal favorites have to be the dancing one and the "I dunno" face. Anyone that knows me can attest to how much I use them on a regular (read daily) basis.


    Some emoticons are more useful than fun. The steering wheel *driving* emoticon can come in handy if you put it up as a status on BBM before (not while) you start driving, thus letting people know to not BBM you at the moment. The same thing can be said for the airplane *fly*, or dinner *dine* emoticons which help indicate a busy status.

    Now, as great as the BBM emoticons are right now, I would love to see a few extra ones added and a few changed around a bit. The confused emoticon shouldn't be :/ at all because that's just a different expression all around. It would also come in handy to have a high-five, tapping fingers (waiting), a clapping one, and a few others emoticons available.


    A few of my followers on Twitter would like a middle finger emoticon as well.

    So now we want to know what you think. What is your favorite BBM emoticon? If you could add any emoticon to BBM, what would it be? I know it may be hard to decide, but leave a comment with your favorite emoticons and/or a suggestion for new ones.
