MSN Smileys, Emoticons, Emotions and Avatars

The MSN Smiley and Emoticons Age has arrived

Communication is something that play a vital role in our daily lives. True enough, technology has effectively grasped the situation and has been rigorously devising ways on how to enhance these modes. Such innovations introduced today are that of SMS or Text Messaging, Mobile or Cellular devices, Instant Messaging and Video Conferencing. Each has their own way of making the manner of communication more lively and among the notable rave for most people today is that of getting smileys, emoticons and avatars to bring color towards how they would want to express their hidden identities.

While some find this awesome, there are sites that have made such opportunities as a stepping stone towards mischief as well. Some carry Trojans, viruses and hoax, supposedly harmless in a sense, but actually silently break some system files in computers, unknown to the person behind it. If such files or cookies can get past technology armed individuals, then anyone can just imagine how people who are clueless would be aware of such malicious acts unseen by them.
On the positive side, similar to that of blogging or article writing, these have gotten their share of creative minds and putting them into existence, most of which have been praised by people who have become addicted towards these add-ons.

Animation and cartoon enhancements are something that most people would always search for, and if one would look for them in the top search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN, millions of sites would turn out that can provide such emoticons, display pictures, avatars and emotions.
