Mashable recently heard from Facebook themselves that they will be rolling out emoticons in the U.S. shortly. It was tested back in January this year, and not many details were released on the subject.
It will be easier to specify what you’re doing and feeling, as these emoticons will include faces, food, drinks, music, movies, etc. It will be a breeze to tag a celebrity, book you’re reading, and much more.
This visual update to their status composer is beneficial for Facebook users, advertisers, and Facebook itself. Facebook will get a clearer understanding of what you’re feeling and when, users can express themselves easier, and advertisers compile more information on their target market.
