Japanese Emoticons

Yes they may be puerile but I find it amazing the amount of information you can emote in just a couple of bytes. I look at these and txt msg spk (not to be confused with l33t sp3ak)and wonder what trade offs are in the current evolution of language? Are we giving up fidelity for speed or is it just an improvment and I'm just resistant to change?
