Since emojis have become one of the most important parts of communication, I guess we should keep up on what’s popular.
A massive new study by the University of Michigan just figured out the most popular emoji in the world is . . . the “tears of joy” face. That’s the yellow face with the huge smile and tears coming out of both eyes, in case you don’t know. It’s also the most popular emoji in the U.S.
It’s SO popular that we use it almost three times more than any other emoji.
The rest of the five most popular emojis in the United States are: The “kissing face” that has a heart right next to the mouth . . . the face with hearts for eyes . . . the face that’s smiling and blushing . . . and the red heart.
The study also found that about 9% of all the texts we send contain at least one emoji. And women are twice as likely to use an emoji as men.
