Emoticons are used by everyone who chats over instant messenger. In fact some messengers come bundled with their own set of emoticons instead of relying on third-party ones. BBM is one of these and the messenger platform has its own set of emoticons. But maybe you were thinking that it is time for some new ones. If you believe it could use some new ones, BlackBerry is now asking users to submit their ideas for new BBM emoticons. You could see your idea used.
According to a recent post on Facebook, BlackBerry is asking users to submit their own ideas by leaving a detailed description of what they have in mind in a message replying to the post. And no, they are not accepting files at the moment, you just describe what it is you want. You won’t be drawing it.
BlackBerry also wants you to like some of the posts if you like the persons ideas. The deadline for submissions is the 20th of November. This is a great way to get Blackberry involved with the company of the creative process. I think they should offer more of a prize though, aside from the chance to see your emoticon idea used. So go ahead and send them your thoughts.
