Facebook Emoji Codes

Facebook supports over 3,000 emojis. These require an emoji keyboard, copy-paste from an emoji website or the emoji picker on Facebook.

Between 2012 and 2017 Facebook also supported custom emoticons that could be inserted using the following codes.

As of 2018 these are no longer supported, and do not convert to the emojis shown here.
