Do you feel that emoticons-- :) lol, etc. are appropriate on Goodreads?


message 2: by Carole (new)

Carole B (caroleaburkett) I think it depends. I mean, they're appropriate for casual conversations, but I think in book reviews and writings they are tacky.

Evanne, What about here in this group? Jess


message 4: by Carole (new)

Carole B (caroleaburkett) Definetly appropriate; unless some members are having a deep philosophical discussion and someone randomly comments this: :-) But hey. That's the risk you take, being in a fun group like this.

Evanne, They don't bother me--in fact, I use them here :). I was just wondering what others thought.

I hope you really do have fun in this group. That's what it is for.

I have a boss who is just learning these. It is amusing when he actually uses them--because his IM's are very formal.
