Emoji Meanings

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's pretty safe to say that at least half the world is officially bilingual - as we're declaring that emoji is an actual language (because we say so!).

But be warned before you start boasting about your new found language skills - because some emojis look different depending on what phone you're using!

Instead of writing an essay about the water cycle, osmosis or the works of Shakespeare, some boffins at GroupLens have studied what people think emojis actually mean based on their device - and things could be getting hella awkward!

We know that anything more than 140 character ain't worth reading, so we'll summarise... You know that awkward/cringey emoji  on an iPhone? That's actually a HAPPY face  on an Android!

Mind. Blown.
