By emoticons I assume you mean things like the Smilies that you put at the end of a message. I've never used them because to me they seem too restrictive. They seek to distill a facial expression or emotion into a compartmentalized two-dimensional figure. I don't think facial expressions or nuanced speech can be translated into non-verbal figures. We have literature and poetry to do that.
