A picture is worth a thousand words, so maybe that’s why some many of us have fun using emojis?
The infographic below, covers some of the basic’s of emoji…ing(?)…but it’s mostly the history of these little graphic characters that I find particularly interesting.
These little color bits started in 1995!?!
