You see, emoji is not a language. And the Unicode Consortium, the organization that organizes the world of every feature even the platform, does not try to make it one.
So now, on World Emoji Day, tell emoji elitists to back off. You can use 🦄 however you want.
Here are some examples with some emojiology analysis from Emojipedia:
This is the emoji commonly used to express misbehavior. But it is also used to show anxiety, frustration and sarcasm. So you're smiling about whatever happens in your usual life … just reversed.
Example 1: Guess you just forgot to add the milk to her cereal this morning? 🙃
Example 2: My friend's 3-year-old friend just wastes juice throughout my new blouse. 🙃
Example 3: No, it's fine. Everything is fine. 🙃
Folded hands 🙏
The two hands pressed together in the tone of the skin you choose are the same as their intended symbol of prayer. Not religious? Do not worry. Some people use more freedom to show praise and respect. For example, these emoji are for you.
: I'm going to 🙏
here, and look forward to this stain.
Example 2: My friend told me to pay for my new blouse his 3-year-old just spilled juice everywhere to get dry cleaned. 🙏
Example 3: I'm glad he took responsibility for his son's actions. Not yet
Perhaps the pair of eyes looking to the left is used to indicate that you are looking at something. Or maybe this is a way to express doubt or deception. Another option is the approval of what looks like something.
Example 1: I'm 👀 for a new fashion style to try.
Example 2: O yes, best friend, I see you in new shoes. 👀
Example 3: Are you sure you want to pay the heavy price for those shoes though? 👀
There is a literal use of fire to express heat and an actual fire bundle. But emoji users have become lovers of emoji enthusiasts for metaphors, such as describing a person's behavior or displaying something's approval.
Example 1: Cold, so we started a little 🔥 to keep us warm.
Example 2: He realized that he did not get his jacket. He is 🔥 🔥 🔥
Example 3: Do you take that picture? Oh that 🔥
Crying – and many of them 😢 누나
There are crying emoji 😢 faces, often used to show some sadness. But what about the loud crying of emoji 😭, you're asking? Oof, that's a never-ending debate. Some argue that it is for laughter, not tears of behavior. Do not forget the tears of joy emoji 😂 which are also available for self-deprecating laughter.
Example 1: I removed my wallet home today. 😢
Example 2: How do I pay for lunch today? 😭
Example 3: OK. We are hungry together. It seems, there's a pretty big hole in my empty wallet. 😂
I do not want to mess! How do I know which one to use?
