17 July – World Emoji Day
Today is World Emoji Day! Today is the perfect day to celebrate the fun emoticons that liven up our text messages, emails, and more. Emojis have been steadily growing in popularity since 2012 and are now considered their own method of communication by many.
World Emoji Day was created by the founder of Emojipedia, Jeremy Burge, in 2014. He created World Emoji Day to celebrate the amusing icons that make us smile. Did you know that the “face with tears of joy” emoji is one of the most popular emoticons? That’s right! The classic red heart emoji comes in at a close second.
