They convey the poster's emotions - that can help when interpreting meaning in a medium where one can't see the sender's facial expression or hear their voice tone. Plus, they're just fun.

As an example this sentence can have different meaning depending on the associated smilie..

My relatives are coming to visit

My relatives are coming to visit

My relatives are coming to visit

My relatives are coming to visit


Note: the above example is ONLY an example and is not based on my own personal experience with my relatives...

There's also:

Likewise, the above example is ONLY an example and is not based on my own personal experience with my relatives
