World Emoji Day

World Emoji Day

Happy World Emoji Day! Whether you’re happy, sad, or ready for a drink, emojis are used every day to show emotions, so why not celebrate them? July 17 has been chosen for this momentous occasion because July 17 is the day marked on the iOS calendar emoji.

Emojis have been becoming more and more popular outside the world of texting. It started as a way to express emotion via pictorials on iOS and Android phones. It quickly became breaking news when Unicode released 37 new emoji options, and now even brands, like Coca-Cola and Chevrolet, have joined in the emoji fad. Coca-Cola Puerto Rico ran an Emoti Coke promotion in February, and Chevrolet started the #ChevyGoesEmoji campaign last month by sending out a press release written in emojis.

Ever wonder what your favorite emoji means? Well, at, they have a list of emoji resources to help you find out!

Join in on the celebration on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook by using the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay.


Update: 38 new emojis were just announced for June 2016.
