More Emojis Means More Diversity
POSTED May 11, 2021
With over 7 billion people in the world, coming from all different cultures, races, ethnic backgrounds, and much more, we have learned to use emojis as a way to connect and communicate with each other.
According to weforum.org, as of 2021 there are 3,353 emojis and about 5 billion are used every single day. The first emoji came out in 1999 and they have grown ever since. In 2021 alone, there have been 217 new emojis released. They range from face expressions, hearts, food, animals, signals, flags, people and body parts, travel, places, activities, objects, and much more.
Recent news has found that since there are so many people from all different cultures, a better job needs to be done at providing a bigger selection of emojis for all.
Many can hope to find emojis that resemble them and become more welcomed and expressed when communicating with others with emojis.
