The smiley face or happy face represents a smiling human face. It’s normally portrayed with two dots for eyes and a half circle for the mouth in a yellow circle background. The happy face graduated to the “smiley”, a term used to describe the online emoticon.

Here’s an interesting tidbit about when the happy face may have actually been first invented. Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts devised the face in 1963 for an insurance company looking for a marketing campaign to boost its employees moral. Since Ball didn’t promote or trademark the image, it fell into the public domain in the US. Apparently the only earnings Ball ever made from it was his initial $45 fee. Now that sucks. *sad face*. Also, kinda interesting that a fellow with the name ‘Ball’ invented the happy face.

Smiley faces have long since progressed into emoticons that feature multiple feelings. We all know just how badly our online comments can be misinterpreted without the addition of a smiley face, an lol, or a wtf.  It’s good to remember that the person reading your comment reads it in the mood they’re in at the time, not the mood you intended. Placing the right emoticon with your post can overcome the reader’s predisposition to put their own feelings of the moment into it.

Perks to Having Emoticons on the Wall

Not only do emoticons add color, fun, and interest to a space, they can also be used in a cheeky way. When a person wants to express the emotion they’re feeling, they can point to the emoticon that expresses it. Certainly a useful tool for teachers.
