Smilies - pretty straightforward and nicely understood plain ASCII composite glyphs.

Emoticons - message board graphical representations of smilies. Quite neat in their day.

Emojis - a cancer, a virulent cancer. Should be about as popular as an STI in a whore house. Nuke from orbit, yes that's probably about right.
