The History Of Emoticons by zacthetoad The History Of Emoticons by zacthetoad
The History Of Emoticons

This is, of course, only my interpretation on the timeline of emoticons over the past 26 years. Based on my research and various submissions here on deviantART.

I - The original emoticon, first used by Scott E. Fahlman on 19th of September, 1982.
II - Basic variation of the original, automatically converted.
III - Simple yellow smily, first use of colour in emoticons.
IV - Developed smily, shading based on `newklear's work.
V - Completely developed, strongly influenced by *sml-e's work.


If you're interested, take a look at A Brief History Of Emoticons.
