The smiley and frowney faces we send to one another over chats and text messages are so ubiquitous, we often take them for granted. But you'll never look at them the same way again after seeing these images created as part of an ad campaign to combat online predators. The idea by ad agency Rosapark for non-profit Innocence en Danger is that this is a reminder for children that the people they are talking to online using those cute emoticons are real people, and could turn out to be very, very creepy.
