Keyboard smileys are expressive faces, or emoticons, made up of letters, numbers, punctuation marks and other keyboard symbols. Western smileys are read sideways, usually with the top on the left; Asian-style smileys are read horizontally. To make a smiley with fangs, the mouth character or characters is changed to suggest protruding teeth. Some applications that convert text strings to small graphical smileys have a fanged or toothed smiley.

  • For bigger-fanged emoticons, you can use text art (ASCII art). Design your own or use an ASCII art library such as ascii-art.de.
  • Emoticons (smileys) are for fun, informal communication like e-mails to your friends. Avoid using them in more serious messages or academic work.
