And in today's episode of things-you-didn't-know-you-needed-to-know: our most used emoijs!
We all love using emojis, whether it’s to enhance what you’re saying, because you don’t know what to say, or just because their cute! Seriously, some feelings you can only be explained with an emoji; emojis have become words in themselves!
So which emojis are used the most in our region? Thanks to Edelman, we know that these ten emojis are the most used in the MENA region:
1. Face with tears of joy (guilty of using any time anything is remotely funny)
2. Red heart
3. Black heart
4. Smiling face with heart shaped eyes
5. Rolling on the floor laughing
6. Face throwing a kiss
8. Sparkling heart
9. Heart suit
10. Broken heart
Special mention: the medical mask emoji. We’ve gone from barely using this one to using it like every day! In Egypt alone it has been used in more than 3.4 million Facebook posts in just three months!
Bet you’re checking your recently used emojis now aren’t you?
