A picture is worth a thousand words.
A study shows that over 31 million tweets and half a million Facebook posts use emoticons and emojis to express emotion and to substitute body language and tone of voice in plain text.
Emojipedia's statistics reveal that:
|In total there are 3,304 emojis in the Unicode Standard as of March 2020. This includes sequences for gender or skin tone, flags, and the components that are used to create keycap, flag, and other sequences.|
There are so many emojis that it is difficult for us to choose and insert an appropriate emoji into the content to express current emotions. To address this, you might need an emoji picker.
