Usually the symbols stand for something, like the symbols for currency: $ means dollar, € means euro and so on. But there are many other symbols out there, and not all of them stand for something. If you want to know their connection to Facebook, don’t leave the page!
Most of the time, the symbols are just signs, and in computer language, many such signs have been created even if they’re not being used on a daily basis. On Facebook, though, the situation is different because they can actually be used very often, even daily and you probably have seen people doing it on Facebook and not only.
To use these signs, or symbols on the computer one has to use a pretty complicated Unicode encoding. But to save time and energy, there are many sites hosting the codes for many people to use, and all one has to do is to copy the code and to pasted it in the desired place. You can even use generators for these symbols, and there are plenty of them out there: all you have to do is to select the symbol combination you’re interested in, an that’s it! It can’t get any more easy than this!
This image shows you just a tiny little part of what can you do with the symbols. Taken separately, most of these symbols have no meaning, no artistic appearance nor appeal – almost nothing. Possibly, the only thing they could do, is inspire the imagination of thousands and thousands of internet and Facebook users. When one is combining them, sometimes with numbers and letters as well, little artistic images will appear. One can type butterflies, ribbons, fish, hearts and so on and so forth, all they need is an artistic eye and probably a lot of imagination.
The symbols can even be the smiling faces you already got used to, from using popular instant messaging services. You can even combine these with more signs for added “special effects” to the message you’re trying to convey. Sometimes the shortcuts will not turn into anything special, and one has to look at the writing for some time to realize what that is – for instance can you realize what this <º((((>< is? We’ll give you 2 little hints: it lives underwater, and it is popular on (or in) sushi. While the word for fish is shorter than this image, you must admit that you can use it in pretty art, in your Facebook messages and impress your friends.
