7 Things (Which Are My Most Used Emojis) This Week [#39]

A weekly list of things I found interesting, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ‘ (Thumbs Up)

Best for giving a quick confirmation, either in agreement or just a read receipt, without needing to type out a full sentence.

2๏ธโƒฃ โœ… (Check Mark Button)

In the same vein as ๐Ÿ‘, but to let someone know that a task is done!

3๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ™‚ (Slightly Smiling Face)

Baseline happy. In fact, I have :) set to automatically replace as ๐Ÿ™‚ since old texting habits die hard.

4๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ˜ (Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes)

This is my excited face!

5๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ˜† (Grinning Squinting Face)

Best for laughing, especially at oneโ€™s self. Also, this emoji always reminds me of Chandlerโ€™s face from this scene (starts at 00:36).

6๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿคž (Crossed Fingers)

Iโ€™m not a particularly religious person ๐Ÿ™, but I do hope for things, so crossed fingers come in handy (๐Ÿ˜†).

7๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ (Man Shrugging)

This is my newest favorite emoji because itโ€™s helpful in deflecting internet criticism. It adds just enough informality that I think it helps me come across as less authoritative, and more as just giving my personal opinion. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Thanks to Emojipedia for being the ultimate emoji resource, and for allowing sweet URLs like https://emojipedia.org/๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ/ to actually work! Also, you should check out the amazing (and free) Rocket for Mac, which makes using emojis way more effortless.
