Emojis 2016

Emoji s have not only changed the way we communicate with friends, but they ve also made communication as a whole much more fun and engaging.

One of the great things about the Unicode Consortium s universe of approved emojis is that the library is always expanding and changing with the times, much like how Merriam-Webster will add new words to the dictionary every year.

Just today, the Unicode Consoritum gave its final stamp of approval for 72 brand new emoji characters.

While many of the newly approved emojis are riffs on existing designs and include items like new hand symbols and facial expressions, there are quite a few interesting additions that are worth mentioning.
