Emojis have transformed the way we communicate on social media. So much so that Google CEO Sundar Pichai even once made correcting a hamburger emoji his top priority.
Needless to say, our ever-evolving conversations see a large number of emojis used to convey emotions and thoughts that would otherwise take an entire sentence. It is interesting to note that a single emoji can denote differently to different people based on impression and an opportune moment, for e.g. the classic poker face icon can be ‘exasperation’ to some, and ‘deadpan’ to others. Human beings are social creatures, and as such, tend to attach emotions based on current outlook. Therefore, the emoji landscape is rich, varied and entirely subjective to many people.
