You know why I like Skype very much? Its because it has so many lovely smileys. Same is the reason why i hate Google hangouts. The take-over of Skype by Microsoft triggered an overhauling of the smileys. Some of my favourite smileys are now removed or modified that now i dislike them. But still there are a lot of smileys which i enjoy. See the list of smileys in Skype given below.
I was thinking how would i use an instant messenger without smileys. I use smileys extensively to express myself. :-) , :-( , :-D , (happy) , (rock) , (yawn) , (envy) , (nod) , (shake) , (y) , (beer) , (headbang) , (mooning) , (rock) , (heidy).... And even sometimes i become very sad that i dont have a smiley in skype to express something. Come on Microsoft.... We need more smileys... :-)
