Add New Emoticons To Facebook Comments

emoticon-alien-smiley-1Cool New Toys 
For Facebook 

Recently, beyond the official Facebook comment emoticons, a whole collection of unofficial ones have begun turning up. 

Some of these are regular ascii based emoticons and others are modified ascii based. 

For desktop users, the easiest way to start having some fun with these is to install the “Facebook Comment Emoticons” browser add-on for Firefox, Safari, or Chrome. 

Note: These are not the new open-graph related smilies that everyone got a few weeks back. Keep reading to see what I mean! 

Facebook Emoticons For Comments 

You can download the browser add-on here

 Though it has a few differences between the Chrome and Firefox version, the add-ons are fundamentally the same and look like this: 


The smilies appear correctly for “most” people that are not running the add-on.  A few however, seem wonky and occasionally display as random empty squares. 


The best way to stay up to date on this add-on’s changes is to like their Facebook page here

These easily lend themselves to lots of silliness and if you need a safe place to test them out at, you can do so on their FB page as well. 


Just be aware that if one of your friends mentions some “weird square” that you posted, it’s probably just them not being able to see one of the emoticons. (Although, unlike many previous graphics toys, most of these do not require the other person to have the add-on to see them in some manner.)

Hope this adds some fun to your Facebook!

PS: In chrome, the add-on adds a browser button to your menu bar. You can right click on it and select “Hide Button” to easily make it go away.

Oh jeez. I showed my girlfriend this and I don’t think I’m ever going to see the end of new emoticons on FB now. And I swear, some of these emoticons are getting weirder and weirder as time goes on, the other day I got just strings of bizarre faces…won’t sleep tonight, I know it.

Hey Kim,

How much fun is this? I wasn’t a fan of emoticons, until lately because it gives the comment a little more umph!

Using this extension of emoticons will help us stick out of the crowd!

I’m running off to play with them now!
