Facebook is now displaying graphical smiley icons aka emoticons when you type in text based smileys in Facebook comments, it used to only do this in Facebook chat.
If you dont want to see the graphical smileys in your comments see this post for information on how to revert back to just showing the text style smileys in Facebook.
FB Purity is a browser extension that lets you customize how you view and interact with Facebook, making it much easier to use and less annoying.

5 Design tricks that Facebook use to affect your privacy decisions.
The TechCrunch article clearly shows via screenshots of previous application permissions dialogs and the new ones, how they are eroding your privacy rights, by reducing the visibility of the permissions that Facebook applications request.
Please note, that the latest version of the FB Purity browser extension, has a feature that highlights any important permission requests, such as if the app asks for your email address or the permission to post as you. If those permissions are requested, FB Purity draws a thick red box around the permission request, to draw your attention to it. It also changes the colour of the permissions request text from light grey, to black, to make it stand out more against the background, and make it generally clearer to the user what permissions are being requested.
