Sometimes I see people use single brackets, sometimes two or three after a sentence, what is it for?

Like this )

OR Thanks! )))

OR Congrats!))

Is it a smiley, just a habit, or something else? I ask because I see this a lot on this forum and I’m curious

You guys still haven’t told me what this smiley is for

I tried searching the web but I get nothing except for endless smiley lists with no smileys that are just brackets in sight
