The first emoticon was created by Scott Fahlman on September 19, 1982 on Carnegie Mellon University's computer science online notice board. Fahlman suggested using a sideways smiley face ":-)" as a joke marker for posts that were intended to be received as sarcastic humour and not meant to be taken seriously. Since then, many variations of Fahlman's smiley and frowney faces have appeared in text messaging and Facebook posts, ranging from facial expressions to images of animals.
