My friend Mikaela and I got into a debate the other day about the use of the this emoji πŸ‘†

What do you use it for? I thought it was sad or frustrated, turns out according to emojipedia, it’s a woman bowing.

We were also chatting about the different emoji personalities. People who use the same ones as a kind of signature 🌈 ❀️ 😘 , vs those who try seek out the more interesting ones. 🎍(πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ)
What kind of emoji user are you?
I wrote about it here for today’s Sunday Times ZA.
