Good! - Emojis aren't meant to work on Facebook. These emojis do work with Twitter though, you have to DRAG AND DROP them.

Simple and fun to use! - I use them mostly in signatures on my Mac computer. The smiley face symbol for the Emoji Emoticons appears on the menu bar at the top of the screen. Click on it and choose the option to open at login, so it is always available. You only need to click on the emoticon you want (control C unnecessary), move the mouse to where you want the emoticon, and then use control mouse click or control P to insert the emoticon. Notice also that there are options at the bottom of the emoticon chart. You can select all or just some of the emoticons to display. Notice also the slide which enlarges the emoticons, so you can choose the size you prefer. Nice art work.

Wait! - I take back my review. After reading through all the information above, I realized you have to click OPTION + COMMAND + E. That opens up all of the emojis!!! It would've been better if it told you how to do that once you first opened it though...
