In honor of Tuesday being World Emoji Day, we created a chart to celebrate our favorite way to communicate — the emoji.
There are more than 2,800 emoji, and nearly 2,300 of them are used every day, according to Facebook and Emojipedia, an emoji reference website launched in 2013.
For more on the origins of World Emoji Day, check out our past interview with Jeremy Burge, the founder of Emojipedia and creator of the holiday. That was part of our larger Emoji Show-ji, a whole podcast episode devoted to the business of emoji. (Yeah, like we said, we’re pretty big fans of emoji.)
