How it is really used:

To dispel awkwardness. This is like a intermediate laugh for people you are in the process for knowing. Intermediate, because it is neither a mere smile of mild appreciation nor a full laugh that might come off as being too forward.

Joking, poking fun at someone or at a situation.
