The Emojis That Make You More and Less Likable
Emojis provide a FEEL for messages that words can’t always convey . . . but do you form an opinion about PEOPLE based on the emojis they use?
Adobe just released the results of a big study they did on emojis, and it includes lists of the emojis that make people MORE and LESS likable . . . when flirting or dating.
The three that make you the most likable are: The face blowing a kiss . . . the smiling face with hearts . . . and the smiling face with heart eyes.
The three that make you the LEAST likable are: The pile of poo . . . the yellow angry face . . . and the eggplant. (Be careful when asking if someone would like eggplant parmesan for dinner.)
But using emojis is generally a good thing when flirting.
More than half of adults 40 and younger say they’d be more likely to go on a second or third date with someone if they use emojis.
And among Gen Z, 38% say they would not pursue “a serious or long-term relationship” with someone who did not use emojis.
It isn’t ALL flirting though. 32% of young adults say someone they were dating used an emoji to end a relationship with them. (Which seems high . . . not even just a break-up text, a break-up emoji?)
Here are some other stats from the report:
Half of emoji users are more likely to respond if a message contains an emoji.
73% of emoji users think people who use emojis are friendlier, funnier, and cooler than those who don’t.
And 61% of emoji users are more comfortable expressing their emotions through emojis than through plain text . . . while 50% claim they’re more comfortable using emojis than expressing emotion IN-PERSON.
