MANILA, Philippines – It’s World Emoji Day!

Remember that time when we had to use punctuations creatively put together in text messages because there were no other visual options to express how we feel? One of the challenges we faced in this digital age was finding out what the receiver or a sender of a digital message was feeling. 

In 1999, the first emoticons were created in Japan.  Since then, we have learned to apply emojis (Japanese for “picture letter”) in our daily virtual conversations.

This is why Jeremy Burgefounder of Emojipedia, created World Emoji Day: to appreciate the revolutionary invention that is emoji. People and organizations from all over the world joined the celebration on July 17, Friday, through Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, SnapChat, Slack, Tinder, Google Hangouts, and many other platforms where the expressive icons are available today.

Today, half of what we say are expressed through emojis. So it is vital, when navigating the digital landscape, to be able to decipher the meanings behind purely emoji phrases.

In fact, to help people express themselves better through these tiny icons, Apple updated its emojis with varying skin tones. This was met with both applause for the new diversity options, and disappointment for a still-missing emoji.

To help you sharpen your emoji reading skills, here’s a short quiz!
