EMOTICONS, EMOJI AND AVATARS 2
Emoticons, Emoji and Avatars
My Personal Use of Emoticons and Emojis in a given Day
I use emojis and emoticons to communicate facial expressions that are not possible to
communicate using plain words. I mostly use-friendly emojis when communicating with people I
just met to help me look friendly over the phone. Emojis, to be specific, have enabled me at
some point to communicate with a person who did not fully understand English. Sometimes
when I would want to send a message of disappointment to a person, I prefer to use emojis
because they fully deliver the message, and at the same time, they soften the blow of a message
of disappointment. Other instances where emojis and emoticons come in handy is when I don’t
have enough time to type a long message and quickly want to communicate a feeling to a person.
Some Examples of the Typical Emoticons and Emojis that I use in Different Categories and
Contexts
In instances where I am happy and making stories with friends online, either personally
or in WhatsApp groups, for example, I use happy emoticons and emojis in the category of people
and smileys (Gamble & Gamble, 2018, p. 128). In the category of people and smileys, I majorly
use the emojis of smiling face with open mouth, smiling face with halo, grinning face, and
hugging face (Gamble & Gamble, 2018, p. 130). In happy emoticons, I mainly use the =D
emoticon when very happy, and the :-) emoticon when normally happy. In the context where I
am talking about activities involving food, I use eating and drink emojis. In this category, I often
use peach, banana, hot beverage, and peach emojis.
