I am posting an example of Skype emoticons for Naniz from Nambia, who has the excellent idea of using symbols to connect across language barriers!

Hi there, I am going a bit crazy , can't figure out how to email you from the site. I wondered if you can be of any help. I would like HOTC to be connected with Global Giving, but they said it would be better to have one of there partners recommended our organization. It that something Pulse wire can do? Let me know your thoughts. My skype name is: nancysantullo

Lots of love and Happy New Year from all of us here in Peru! Nan

Hi Jen so far there is no email facility on Pulsewire.Everything and anything you post will be seen however it will only be seen by your friends

Love the symbols however sometimes I tend to find those symbols somewhat confusing.Especially when they are represented in text form and not a graphic.For example what does this mean :) and there are many others,my friends keep sending to me.But I just don't get it! However people from all over the wold can always learn what they mean,And then we could have an international standard of symbols

About email on site: We had internal email, but when we upgraded our site, we temporarily lost that functionality. It's one of our top priorities to bring back. Also, did you know you can see all journal posts under Voices Rising? worldpulse.com/pulsewire/voicesrising

About symbols

:) is a smiley face. Sometimes sent as :-)

My mom was confused by this symbol for a long time. :-)

Maybe we should start a list in Sharing Solutions so anyone can access it!?
