There’s little reason to carry on conversations any more. Voice calls have been dropping since 2007 (New York Magazine). Sure, FaceTime other video services like Skype have provided cheaper alternatives; text messaging is the new way to communicate. Besides being short, sweet and to the point, Emojis make communication fun! Emojis are small digital images or icons used to express an idea, emotion, in electronic communication.
Emojis are regulated by the Unicode Consortium and they are releasing 250 new emojis. Yes – we need a group of people to define and create new icons and universal definitions so we can all speak the same language. 😳
Emojis are serious business! The #1 free game on iTunes is called Guess the Emoji. (Think hangman with pictures.) I’ve played it and it’s quite fun! There’s a new Emoji-only social network, called Emoji, set to launch on iOS soon and Emojipedia – in case you need a little help with definitions. It’s time to have some fun – emoji style! 😎
