As a parent of a tween with her first 📱, I was 😟 that too much texting would become problematic. I was also 😰 that cyber bullies or worse, 👦👦👦 might invade my little 👧’s life. So naturally, the only thing to do was to invade her privacy and 🔎 at her texts. What I found was a world of hieroglyphs that any Egyptian would’ve been proud of. Clearly, my little 👸 was on to me and had taken to writing in secret code. I was feeling terribly guilty and 😞 that I had breached her trust until I read this and learned that it wasn’t a trust issue at all. It was the 😎 and whimsical 🌏 of emojis!
Emojis are not only fun, they transform the otherwise zombie-like 😶 process of texting into an exercise of creativity and 🎨 impression. While some choose to interject them into texts, others have taken it to a whole new art form creating virtual murals from these cute little pictographs. Literary enthusiasts have embraced the medium through Kickstarter by raising over $3,500 to fund a translation of Moby Dick 🐋 into what else – Emoji Dick. Incidentally, they not only stimulate the creative side of our brains but the pecuniary parts too. In 🇯🇵 the market for emojis generates over $3 mil USD. Cha-ching!! 💰💰💰
So, spread the pics, there’s more to emojis than meets the 👀.
