First, there’s a debate about whether the plural for the word “emoji” is “emoji” or “emojis” … This author prefers “emojis,” so that’s what this blog will use.Moving on.
Emojis are visual representations of emotions, objects, or symbols. They used to be called emoticons (emotional icons) and were often created with punctuation marks and viewed sideways. :)
Now they’re called emojis and are pictures. 😊
They’ve long been used casually in instant messaging, social media, and texting, but now it seems that emojis are making their way into the workplace, sparking a debate as to their appropriateness in business.
