You’re Using Emoji Wrong

According to Unicode—the people that set the standards for emoticons around the world—we’ve been using many of our favorite Emoji all wrong. In a new proposal, Unicode suggests a few changes that may help people better understand what exactly each Emoji is trying to represent. For example, if you’re an avid user of the face blowing steam from its nostrils to illustrate your anger, you’re doing it wrong. That face is actually called the “Face With Look of Triumph” and is meant to convey pride and winning. Another is the “Weary Cat Face” that many mistake for a look of shock and horror.
