Why would one be more socially acceptable than the other? Is one socially unacceptable?!?

I don't put the nose in because I have a big nose in real life, so in my smiley face world, my nose is a lot smaller. If I did a nose, it would have to be a tiny nose. :∙)

Also, I don't like having to hit the hyphen key with my pinky.

I don't know! I thought it would be interesting to get everyone's perspective on things.

I used to ALWAYS put my nose in there because then Outlook wouldn't turn it into a single-character smiley. Then I started leaving the nose out when I was on neopets so that it WOULD turn into an image. Now sometimes I do both in the same message! My smiley world is very confused.

Is :) socially acceptable because many programs recognize it and icon-ify it? Is :-) more widely used for the same reason?

I tend not to use :-) because most programs I use iconify it, and I tend to prefer the cuteness of :) over most "smiley" images.

Also I don't like noses that much. ;)

I have no idea why, but the one with the nose feels more personal to me. Like I am really *smiling* at the person I'm writing to. Whereas without a nose just means more like 'no worries' rather than, 'here I am I've got a smile for you!'. Werid? Yes.

I wouldn't say one is more socially acceptable, but I do have a preference for what I like out of the two.
