It was December of 2011, and i started the facebook-page “Chat Meme Codes” where i asked people if they wanted to help me make some large facebook chat smileys…
Together, we made several facebook-pages, and used individual pieces of a picture as the facebook-pages profile pictures.
I used this webpage to split the pictures into smaller pieces: http://www.htmlkit.com/services/is/

In order to display these pieces in the facebook chat, you have to put the codes in brackets like this:

If you place a page, group or person’s name in brackets, you will get their current profile picture in the chat:
The whole process of making the “awesome smiley” can be seen on youtube as a video-tutorial:
