When to use them?

When you do think that sending an emoticon will help you with expressing your emotions towards the other person. For example you will send a smile when you are actually smiling. Don’t send a LOL sign when you are actually smiling and not Laughing Out Loud. But what happens in reality when you are sitting at a place where you can not laugh out loud? For example in your office where you cannot laugh out loud because of other people sitting around you, so you could just type LOL and smile. I hope i am not puzzling you! facebook emoticon wink
