Texting is everywhere. These new emoticons will help you say what you need to say much, much faster.

Texting has become the preferred method of communication for most young people. It’s more convenient to send a quick message than to be stuck on the phone for what seems like an eternity.

Of course, everyone who sends texts has also, at some point, used an emoticon. Normally, it’s just a smiley face, a winking face or – in a terrible lapse of judgment – that weird face where you use a ‘P’ to look like your tongue is dangling from your mouth.

But what about when a more specific emoticon is necessary?

To help you out, here are some new emoticons for you to try out on your friends.
