No doubt you have heard of Skype by now.. if you have not, go off to http://www.skype.com/ and check it out.
What is Skype?
With Skype’s free software you can chat away with free Skype-to-Skype calls and never worry about cost, time or distance. You can talk, chat or make video calls for nothing.
The main thing you may use skype for is for making calls and our favourite, sending files and “Instant Messages”. Just like with MSN and other chat applications, you have access to a set of “emoticons” which are a combination of characters that usually form a facial expression, but now we have found.. perform other expressions also.
Hidden Skype Icons
In addition to the built in Skype emoticons (sometimes called smilies), developers with a sense of humor have included a number of “Additional” icons, which cannot be accessed from the skype emoticon menu. These are listed below.
Some of these may not be available in all versions or work on your operating system. Make sure you have the latest version of Skype, then try them out.

Most of these are animated and look great when used in skype chats. Remember that the above emoticons are “hidden” and in addition to the ones you can already access from your skype emoticon smily menus.
We hope you enjoy!
