Facebook brought stickers to its Android and iOS apps this spring, and they're reaching the web right as summer hits full stride. As in the mobile space, desktop users can now use critters, giant smileys and other over-the-top graphics in their private messages. A store is on hand for those who want to venture beyond Facebook's free catalog. Web stickers are available today -- if :) just won't cut it for your conversations, you'll now have a more expressive set of emoticons wherever you go.

Didn't MSN Messenger do something like this years ago?

I'm not a fan of the stickers on my Android, why would I want them elsewhere? They're too large, just let me have some discreet emoticons. And Facebook also needs to update how it interprets input. For example:

Might bring up a smiling face, but:

Will not. It's a really minor thing, but when writing on my phone it becomes a pain.
