Smiley faces and their meaning 

In chats and posts, you can use text symbols to convey your emotion. Below is a short list of the text symbols and what they mean. In some applications, the symbols will change to a graphic.

Note: Facebook will not convert the text symbol to a graphic on the initial post but will convert them on responses (Why I don't know)
