Facebook now allows embed smileys on News feed comments. Comments support the same list of emoticons as Chat, widening their use across the site. Facebook has allowed its users to make the most of it in the chat[...] but it wasn’t available in the news feed or neither in the comments But an update was released by Facebook last week that made the available smileys go beyond its messaging boundaries.


For now Facebook doesn’t allow users to embed smileys into their status updates but are present in all comments to such posts.
