I have a serious confession to make: I’m not good at emojis. I mean, I can get down with the smiley and sad-face emojis, and maybe even the thumbs-up emoji if things are going well, but it doesn’t get much fancier than that for me. In light of all the new emojis being released recently, I decided that it’s time for me to update my emoji knowledge, and learn what emojis to use and when.
So, I did what any emoji novice would do, I Googled them. And the results are pretty fascinating (did you know that emojis originated in Japan and mean “picture letter?”). If you’re late to the game like me, or just want some emoji etiquette tips, check out what I learned about how to use emojis.
