How to Create Emoticons and Smileys in Facebook Chat?

Emoticons and smileys are pictures that you can add to an instant message using a simple combination of symbols found on the keyboard. Facebook chat does not come with an accessible list of smileys like other instant chat clients, but there are several to choose from if you know the correct symbol combinations. Many of these will be familiar to you, but there are a few that are unique to Facebook.

      Open Facebook and open a chat window by selecting a friend from the chat list on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
