XD vs. xD - Which one is correct?

I use XD but around 95% people use xD which makes me think that I am doing it the wrong way. Personally, I feel that it should be XD because it looks symmetrical while with xD it looks like the eyes are tilted to one side which is unoriginal. I wonder why people prefer xD instead of XD. Teach me.

  • I'm an avid user of these faces. It's practically a bad typing habit I have. I almost always use "xD."

    The reason I don't use "XD" is because I always (in my head) imagine it to look more like regular letters -- an X and a D. With xD, the fact of there being a lower case letter in front of a capital, something that is rare in English, helps distinguish it more as a face in my opinion.

    In texting, both are correct, but I personally prefer xD for the reasoning above.

  • I didn't vote because I use both. Typically, I'll use xD, but XD gets used if something is extra hilarious.

    xD = haha: It's funny, but it more than likely just got a smile out of me.
    XD = lmao: It's so entertaining that I'm actually laughing out loud at whatever was said.

  • I like the smaller x - because it looks more proportionate to me - I know it sounds weird because it's not true... but yeah. xD

  • xD

    XD looks weird too kind of like it's actually the letter x and d instead of a smiley face.

  • I ALWAYS USE XD
    because of the same reason, I'm like "wtf, why xD, it doesn't look right to me"

    PS: That dude in the pic has the most amazing teeth I've seen.

  • It's suppose to be two eyes squinting (like your photo) therefore the only TRUE way of doing it would be XD

    xD is simply lazy and stupid.

  • Why bother with popular opinion in even trivial things that are meant to just express something. The expression isn't trivial but the haggling about it is a waste of your precious time.

    Like your pic depicts use XD for a full faced grin and xD for a naughty wink and grin :D ;)

    Live life your way, not by popularity :D

    • Well, it was meant to perfection and knowledge :D

    • Show All
    • Sometimes, I run out of words to appreciate you properly. ;)

    • Between us we don't need words to understand though they're required to communicate where the understanding comes automatically :)

  • xD is correct because XD could be mistaken for an abriviation

  • I use xD
    XD reminds me of this guy who was annoying as fuck. he would be like "XDDDDDDDDDD" at the smallest jokes. It seems too excited to me now.
    I use cx when its a giggle kind of laugh
    and xD when its really funny
    or xDD when its even funnier

    • even more shocking is the fact that its a 20 yo guy that asked this, it would already be hilarious if it was a 14 yo girl asking... but this takes it to yet another level of funny!

    • It's very funny that no matter how stupid question you ask, the worst critics will submit the longest answer and try too hard XD

    • So every question we ask is supposed to be some intellectual post? we can't have a little fun and ask a silly question? o. o
