Emoji

Emoji

Emoji is a type of graphic or picture, expressing a particular mood or attitude.

Emojis could be seen as the Emoticon upgrade.
In 1982, Scott Fahlman, a computer scientist suggested that typing “:-(” and ” :-)”, could be used to distinguish jokes from serious statements online.

In 1998, Shigetaka Kurita created the first Emoji. Soon, Japanese mobile operators included the technology in their operating systems.

Since then, Apple, Android, and others include Emojis as an integral part of their systems.

Nowadays, it is common to meet emotional messages in the form of emojis in conversations over mobile phones or even in online articles.

The similarity between emotion and emoji is a coincidence. The word emoji comes from Japanese: e = “picture” + moji = “character”.

It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Emojis are the proof of it.
They deliver a message without words.

Emojis became a huge industry, not only amplifying online options but, as adopted by manufacturers, producing Emoji related products.
The most common are probably Emoji Pillows, with different characters on them.

The popularity of the topic even induced the film industry to create a movie.

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
