What Does EMOTICON Mean?An EMOTICON is graphical representation of emotion.
Emoticons (or "emotional icons") are a way to show emotion in text-based communication. They consist of a small group of symbols arranged to show emotions, such as happiness, sadness, anger, and others, using the letters, numbers, and symbols usually found on a standard keyboard in a typographic approximation of the desired illustration.
Emoticons have largely been made redundant on most messaging apps, as users now have access to a large number of emojis and most emoticons are automatically replaced with the corresponding emoji.
Happy emoticons are alternatively known as a "smileys" or "smiley faces."
