Emojis have come a long way since their inception. The very first #WorldEmojiDay way back in 2014 was a much simpler affair.
And they're not just used to enhance written texts anymore, they have taken on a life of their own. Statistics show that on Messenger every day 900 million messages are sent using emojis exclusively with no additional text.
And they're not going anywhere, anytime soon. A whole new collection of emojis are set to be released on iOS this year.
