To Smiley or Not to Smiley…

I just read an article in Ragan’s PR Daily website posing the question of whether or not smiley faces are to be considered appropriate for the workplace. Although I include smilies in my text messages, facebook, and personal emails, I am a little hesitant to say I also think it’s appropriate in a work invironment. However, it is all relative.  In an email to anyone higher up than me, I would refrain from using smilies because of the respect factor. One of my equal counterparts, I might be inclined because in that environment you are working together and building different types of relationships with those people than you would your bosses. That’s just my take on it.  What do you think? Leave a comment!
