Emojis. We all use them. But have you ever considered how different platforms and devices use different images, and that those images convey different emotions?
It’s easier to nail an emotion with the straightforward expressions, like a smily face, or an angry one, but what about the in-between cases, like the grinning face with the smiling eyes? It can convey both satisfaction and pleasure, even a certain sense of pride (did it!) but also irritation, or malaise, or the chills with a cringe factor (it was awful!).
So, next time you decide to enhance your text with a little face, choose your emoji wisely, or prepare to hear the classic line, It’s not you, it’s those fucking faces you put on.
