Quest 2 Emoticons
Published on August 22, 2013
This is Quest 2, Emoticons, in the Mobile Computing Mission. Texting is a great way to keep in touch with your friends and fellow agents. There are a couple of problems with it though. It is missing something that is vital to good communication: tone of voice and facial expression. Have you ever texted someone and they got mad at you? Texting, emails, and IM'ing are all ways that we can communicate without seeing or hearing each other. How can you convey meaning when you can't use these things? In one word, emoticons!
