• 15 min

Today we’re talking about one of the most commonly-used tools in messaging conversations across the globe – emojis! Those little cartoon characters on our phones and social media apps help us convey emotion and tone in our messages and posts.  But for as whimsical and entertaining as they can be, emojis also have the power to be misunderstood, or even offensive. Certain emojis can be interpreted differently across different cultures and generations, and what are the rules about using them at work? Here to help us better understand and utilize emojis and even explain the ways they can be controversial —  is the man credited as the world’s first-ever emoji translator: Keith Broni. He oversees a team that researches emoji usage and trends and monitors changes to emoji design sets in his role as the Editor-in-Chief of Emojipedia.
