source: World Emoji Day — July 17, 2023
Today is a rather peculiar day as it is World Emoji Day. It is not an official holiday, but rather an informal one and it was popularized by Jeremy Burge, the founder of Emojipedia, and he chose July 17th based on the way the calendar emoji is shown on iPhones.
So, let’s have a bit of fun with emojis today, tell us below:
- What is your favorite emoji(s), or if you are nostalgic about the past, emoticon(s)? → What are emoticons?
- Your top three (or top 5) most used emojis on your phone or tablet or computer? Feel free to include a screenshot.
- Is there an emoji that carries special meanings where you are from?
And to take it up a notch, you can tell others a little bit about yourself using mainly emojis in this thread!
Our forum does use emojis within reactions (similar to Facebook’s), feel free to suggest a new emoji as well!
