Most people experience ticklishness as a combination of good and bad. If someone is tickled too long it usually hurts. Even though they may be laughing, inside there is a fear of being helpless, and it can be uncomfortable. Scientists have done studies on the brain during tickling and telling jokes, and though on the outside it looks the same, they both laugh, on the inside the brain is doing very different things. I do not recommend tickling, it is really not fun. I also urge all adults to stop tickling children. It may be cute to make them laugh and smile, but you are programming a lifetime of fear and tension that is stored in their skin and nervous system. Please do not tickle anybody.

Why do people smile when tickled Why do people in fact only smile not cry etc?

I personally think that people smile when tickled and don't cry as when people are tickled their weak points of their bodies are responding to the stimulus of touch at that point, releasing a certain number of hormones which induces pleasure in the mind which often results in the breathlessness of the person being tickled. This is why people laugh in pleasure when they are tickled. But if they are hit force in the same place disastrous results are seen . For example if a person is hit in the neck with a lot of force he or she will go unconscious but if he or she is touched very gently they will be tickled
