Emojis.

Modern communication has increasingly been taken over by mass media like WhatsApp and Facebook, both of which I use. One of the conveniences of using such a method is that instead of writing long sentences to express emotions, one simply uses emojis.

I use a few regularly and they are these.

🙏. Namaste is the one that I use most often to express gratitude for some message. It is such a versatile symbol that it can be used for expressing many other emotions like, respect, greetings etc.

😀. The second most used emoji is this smile. I use it to express joy in response to either good news or a joke.

😂. After that comes this one to express great joy or laughter.

😔. Less needed but used nevertheless is this one to express sorrow or sadness or disappointment.

😇. I use this to express smugness or appreciation for a response.

👍. I use this to express my appreciation for the contents of the message.

👌. I use this to express that I find the message apt and useful.

👏. I use this to indicate that I applaud the message.

Three more emojis that I use regularly are:

👆. To point to a message / link given above in a separate message.

👇. To point to a message / link given below in a separate message.

🖕. I don’t need to explain do I?

There are experts in using emojis who exchange proper conversations using many emojis but alas, I am not in that league, nor do I want to be. Here is an example:

This is my take on this week’s Friday 4 On 1 blog post topic. The other three bloggers who write on the same topic every Friday are Sanjana, Padmum and Shackman. This week’s topic was suggested by Padmum. Please do go over to their respective blogs to see what they have to say on the topic. Thank you.
