Emojis

A new quirky communication phenomenon originated in Japan in 1999 in response to limited texting constraints.  Lack of copyright meant they spread like wildfire because they communicate immediately with attitude - a visual potency, transcending language barriers.  Samantha Edwards – Vandenboek, a lecturer in digital and social visual communications at Swinburne University says that “emojis are an effective way to add tone and zest to text-based communication”.   They originate from the earliest forms of expression, cave paintings, pictograms and hieroglyphics.  (Excerpted from Rose Powell, Spectrum April 4 – 5 2015)

Like acronyms, emojis communicate instantly to those in the know.
