I love emojis. If you haven’t gotten on the emoji bandwagon, it’s okay. They aren’t for everyone but I personally don’t know how we ever delivered textual messages with the appropriate emotional intent without them. Take the following for example:
- I am so happy for you. 😃 (Interpreted as: Yes, I am happy for you.)
- I am so happy for you. 🙄 (Interpreted as: I’m being sarcastic. No. I’m not happy.)
- I am so happy for you. 🙂 (Interpreted as: I’m politely happy for you. I don’t show many emotions.)
Emojis even allow you to take this to the next level by adding another layer of description depth. Try 2 or more emojis.
- I am so happy for you. 😃🥰🥳 (Interpreted as: Yes, this is exciting. Love this. Let’s celebrate!)
- I am so happy for you. 🤥🙄😬 (Interpreted as: I lie. Ugh. I’d hate to be you.)
- I am so happy for you. 👏🏻🙂🙌🏻 (Interpreted as: Congratulations. Good job. Way to go!)
Emojis are also a great way to save time and avoid having to type. This is a real issue when you have fat thumbs like me and must not send any spelling errors. It’s especially useful when responding to texts. For example, let’s respond to these questions: Thoughts? Do you agree?
Any of these will work with just one click: 👍🏻👌🏻💯
Nowadays, you can go even bigger than emojis. There are Memojis and personally, I love Bitmojis! Personalize your gravatar with your own hairstyles and clothing options.
Or GIFS! Try to guess the meaning of these:
Well, the point is, emojis, bitmojis and GIFS make any conversation a lot more interesting and they are quite fun to play with. So enjoy yourself! Explore a little!
Facial expressions are easier to interpret. Bitmojis are more accurate about expressing one’s feelings on the topic and news.
What are stickers in the digital age and how are they different from bitmojis?
to my limited knowledge they are more options for different platforms. Stickers are mostly general phrases that I can tell. I think Bitmojis are basically one company’s brand of gravatars like Facebook has the Memoji.
