When people speak to one another face-to-face, it isn’t just our words that convey a message. Our eyes, our lips, and our facial expressions say something too. Text messages, social media posts, and comment threads can use facial expression emojis to add additional context to written words. Is the writer smiling or frowning? Are they serious, or speaking with a wink and a nod? Are they laughing or blushing with embarrassment?
There are emoji facial expressions that convey happiness, sadness, curiosity, silliness, queasiness, and everything in between. There are also robot faces, cat faces, monkey faces, and of course a smiling pile of poop face.
