They are 'smiles' O = An wide open eye. . = a nose and o = a semi closed eye.

_ = a mouth

Usually those are weirded out smilies..

O_o means you're confused, like of like "whoa?!?!"
O_O is total shock, or watching very intently

The other ones you have are just variations of these too

I always prefered this one:

as a smiley, and:

as a nervous smile. Of course anime has a lot to do with that.
