What is an Emoji?


Emoji is a Japanese word simply meaning picture (e) + character (moji). The electronic characters, such as smiley faces, originated in Japan but are now available more widely on most of the popular smartphone and computing platforms.

Because they’re available in what’s called ‘Unicode’ they’re universal on multiple platforms, although they may look a little different depending on the device you’re using (i.e. iPhone or Android).

Be Emoji Inpsired: Emoji pillows, Emoji shirts and Emoji iPhone cases are just a few of the things you can buy.

How to Use Emoji?


When you’re typing out a message you’ll see a smiley face icon on your keyboard. Tapping or clicking this will bring up a selection of emoji for you to choose from usually divided into a number of categories.

When to Use an Emoji


Emoji can be used to convey emotions, such as happy, sad, scared, angry and so on. They can also be used to substitute for words, making text messages more interesting and colourful. Experienced users can even draw entire messages with emoji.
