Emoticons: the origin story from 1900 – 2014

Emoticons are excellent ways to express your hidden meaning when you WhatsApp or SMS your friends. Sarcasm for example is completely lost without a tongue in your face punctuation :P or a wink-face smiley ;)

It might surprise you to know how old the emoticons date back. Long before your smartphone, long before the Nokia 3210, even longer before your dad and mom chatted on the telephone and sent their friend hand-written messages there were emoticons.

The video below shows a really interesting origin and evolution story of the emoticon.
