Say it With Feeling: The World of Emojis!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Many people prefer using text messages to communicate these days, so they look to emojis – small digital images or icons to express an idea or emotion – to convey their feelings. Rina tells us about the world of emojis, in the weekly column, exclusively for Different Truths.

It was a smooth sunny day, to cherish the moment of life I was enjoying my coffee and suddenly I got a message, to wind up things quickly I just emoji, it as thumbs up. Sipping my coffee, I was surprised thinking how emojis are a huge part of our daily conversations now. Emojis reflect our emotions sometimes love, care, feelings or sharing romance – not through words but expressions.

Many people prefer using text messages to communicate these days, so they look to emojis – small digital images or icons to express an idea or emotion – to convey their feelings. Rightly so, too, since these images are a nifty way to cut to the chase, especially given everybody’s short attention spans.

Once used only by smartphone – obsessed young techies, everyone has since jumped on the emoji bandwagon. In fact, an emoji – it’s the one with the tears of joy – was the Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year, in 2015.

So, it’s time to reveal what the adorable icons that you use daily say about you. When you open your favourite smartphone messaging app, the first emoji you see is on the emoji keyboard is:

Pouting Face

Grouchy, angry and likely to blow your stack at any moment, you can definitely use a holiday. You have been on the receiving end of comments like “just chill” more times than you care to remember.

Face Savouring Delicious Food

Your day revolves around food. Even when you are not eating, you are surfing the net for cooking tutorials just to satisfy your # foodporn cravings. Your dream invention will the ability to taste food by licking your smartphone screen.

Loudly Crying Face

You are suffering from a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out). Overworked and underpaid best describes your life at this moment.

Smirking Face

Cheeky and playful, you always have a mischievous thought on your mind and are not afraid to air them. Your friends love that about you but do occasionally feel a little disdainful of your lack of a filter.

Expressionless Face

You have way too many friends who use the smirking face emoji but still cannot find it in you to make them stop make inappropriate jokes. Partly because you find their wacky sense of humour pretty appealing, on some level! However, you are also cautious about the way you express yourself.

Face with Tears of Joy

The hopeless optimist, you always look at the bright side of life and are surrounded by a bunch of good-natured and awesome friends who ensure things remain that way.

Smiling Face with Sunglasses

Fashionably late at social occasions but always impeccably dresses. Your friends consider you to be the coolest dude on the block – or are you one to shy away from the camera. No occasion is complete without your presence.

Winking Face

You are out to have a good time and would do everything in your power to make sure others have as much fun as you. You always have a joke up your sleeve, so that any get- together is a blast.  Although you are unlikely to offend with your words, your friends also know that they shouldn’t take your words too seriously either.

Face with Rolling Eyes

Time is always of the essence for you. You are always on top of matters and dislike it whenever you realise someone is pulling the wool over your eyes and you aren’t afraid to show that you’re not having any of that BS!

Emoji have quickly risen as a language of the young hearts – but many of them are now taking on dirty hidden meanings. It revealed a generational gap between the interpretations of certain emoji. So while they seem innocent enough, it’s probably best to be careful who you send these symbols to. Few examples;

Fire: This symbol is often used to let someone know they are good-looking (hot) on social media.

Water Drops: This symbol can be interpreted as an orgasm by young but study found older people saw it as rain.
