Emoticons are the new sensational language used at any social platform to express our mood and feelings. It is the best way to understand what the other person is presently thinking or trying to convey without any face to face conversation but wrong use of emoticon can completely change the meaning of your text.

1. Triumph Face

We generally misuse this emoticon to show our excess anger but this emoticon stands for triumph. Now you keep wondering why it looks the complete opposite.

2. Confused Face

This emoticon expresses confusion but is misused by people to show stress. We do it again and again completely ignorant that we are using the wrong emoticon for showing our tension.

3. Hushed Face

Surprising to know that this surprised face emoticon actually means quiet and serious. We use it show our awe when we come across anything awesome.

4. Dizzy Face

Have you ever used this emoticon to show astonished expression? If yes, then you were wrong. This emoticon’s real use is to show dizziness.

5. Snoring Face

6. Grimacing Face

7. Hugging Face

This is the most misused emoticon as we all use it to express happiness and joy but the real meaning is quite interesting. This emoticon is stretching out its hands to give you a hug. Use it wisely next time.

8. Savouring Face

Is this a teasing face? Yes, we all think and misuse this emoticon for the same but actually it is a face showing the food was delicious. It's right usage would be to praise someone for the food or to say thanks for a treat.

9. Bored Face

We misuse this emoticon when we want to show that we are speechless. However, the real meaning is the expression of being bored or annoyed by the conversation. Okay, better luck next time.

This face seems to be depressed or sad, but actually it is taking time to think. It is called the pensive face and reflects serious or deep thoughts. Hope you are in a pensive mood now.
