It is no doubt that we use Emoji every single day, be it on WhatsApp, Facebook or Telegram.
Do you know that World Emoji Day falls on July 17 every year? Another fun fact that you should know is that emoji is a Japanese word that means picture word. When people can't express what they want to convey in words, they will often replace the texts with emojis.
We send text messages every day and it has become a part of our everyday life. Texts without emojis can sometimes sound solemn or boring. So many of us tend to end a sentence with emoji 😂.
