What are emojis for?

Emojis are used to allow us to transmit our emotions more easily and our ideas in the text messages we send. For example, we put a crying emoji 😭 to express something funny or sad, or the use ofemoji thumb up 👍 to show our approval, or the heart emoji to show our affection. Indeed, sending a message without an emoji can be considered cold or unpleasant in certain contexts.

We also use emojis to make ourselves better understood by our interlocutors or to lighten the tone of the conversation or the atmosphere in which the discussion is taking place. So, with just a few emojis, we can get a message or our feelings across in writing.

What's more, the meanings of these little symbols are generally the same wherever you are, with the exception of theemoji smiling face with halo which can mean something else in some countries, such as China. So it's possible to make yourself understood simply by using these emojis, or by accompanying your messages with them.
