    Thank you for the useful guide on how to express our emotions through Facebook. When you are replying to anyone either through email, texting, or through a social media site, it becomes important sometimes to express what you really mean. I know so many arguments or misunderstandings that begin with just a simple comment. Although no malice was meant, it was read wrongly, on the other end. This useful guide is a great way to make sure that your intentions are read every time.
