Sometimes a bit of fun “news” is in order here at PhoneArena, to distract us from the more somber tech stuff such as the dire global chip supply shortage, the forbidding prices of most of our dream flagship phones, and the gradual disappearance of online privacy and cybersecurity.
Today, that customary diversion involves emojis; namely, we’ve finally got a list of the most popular emojis that were used throughout the year 2021, just published by the official Unicode Consortium in charge of maintaining the universal emoji sets we know and love so well.
And according to them, apparently, the top ten emoji used worldwide are Face with Tears of Joy, Red Heart, Rolling on the Floor Laughing, Thumbs Up, Loudly Crying Face, Face Blowing a Kiss, Smiling Face with Hearts, and Smiling Face with Smiling Eyes (we’d insert the actual emojis here, but unfortunately the system doesn’t allow it).
Now, no matter which emojis you tend to use the most, we encourage you to express yourself in whatever way makes you happy. This means that if showing your excitement online means screaming in chocolate-coated doughnut emojis and pizza slices, then by all means—do your thing. No one should be judged on their emoji choices, and we strictly stand by that. [Insert Grinning Cat with Smiling Eyes Here]
