Icons and emoticons are pictorial representations created using the letters, numbers, and symbols usually found on a standard keyboard.

Icons

Icons are images of popular objects or characters. For example, (_8^(I) is an icon representing Homer Simpson.

Emoticons

Emoticons generally show emotions (such as happiness, sadness, anger, etc.). For example, the group of characters O:) depicts a person with a halo, meaning "I am innocent."

Emoticons have largely been made redundant on many messaging apps (e.g., Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Skype), where users have access to a large number of emoji. In fact, most emoticons are automatically replaced with the corresponding emoji.

Emoticons are also known as a "smileys" or "smiley faces."
