Researchers from the Rice University found that while women may use emoticons more than men, the men used a larger variety of these symbols to express themselves.



Emoticons are graphic symbols that use punctuation marks and letters to represent facial expressions to convey a person's mood, help provide context to a person's textual communication and clarify a message that could otherwise possibly be misconstrued.

Researchers used smartphone data from men and women over six months and aggregated 124,000 text messages.
