Hidden Emoticons and Smileys in Yahoo! Messenger

Emoticons are little characters that spice up IM conversations and share your emotions beyond the words in the text your type. I use Yahoo messenger for many years and usually select some common smileys from the emoticon menu or type the keyboard shortcuts into a text message. Today a reader suggested some hidden smileys and emoticons which you probably do not know about.

Here are the Hidden Emoticons for Yahoo Messenger that you won’t find in the emoticon menu, but you can send them by typing the symbols directly into an instant message.

Some cool ones I am definitely going to use are –
I dont know…
I dont know emoticon Type :-??

I’m not listening…
I'm not listening emoticon Type %-(

There are many more cool hidden emoticons that you need to learn and amaze your friends who have no idea how you created it. Just don’t share the secret and they will keep wondering forever… hee hee emoticon
