New smilies on WordPress.com!
Fan of smileys? :) We are. That’s why we just redesigned them to be cleaner, simpler, bigger, more expressive, and modern.
These new smileys are actually vector graphics, so they’ll stay crisp if you zoom in on your page. They’ll also stay sharp on high-resolution mobile displays.
To find out how to use an emoticon appearing in this post, just hover over it and you’ll see which characters produce it. We’re working on expanding our collection, so stay tuned for more smiley fun.
XD >:D :( :'( :| :/ :o :P >:( O_o ^^’ <3
If you’re not a fan of smileys, that’s okay! You can always turn them off and on in your dasbhoard under Settings → Writing. We hope you’ll have fun with these. Smile!
Bonus: We also created a few secret emoticons for you to discover. Good luck finding them! ;)
