by -127 views

The Unicode Consortium has joined the flurry of this yrโ€™s roundups with an entertaining list of the well-nigh used emojis of 2022. The Consortium establish that the smiley/emotion category was the most widely used. Its report breaks down the nine emoji categories into the most and least used.

Over 5 percent of all the emojis used this year were the ๐Ÿ˜‚ (Tears of Joy), while the โค๏ธ (Heart) emoji was a distant second.

Here are the top 10 based on popularity: ๐Ÿ˜‚ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿฅฐ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜Š.

For comparison, 2022โ€™s height 10 emojis based on popularity were: ๐Ÿ˜‚ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿ‘

โ€œ2% of the worldโ€™s online population use emoji โ€” but which emoji are we using? Well, information technology appears that reports of Tears of Joyโ€™s death are greatly exaggerated ๐Ÿ˜‚. According to information nerveless past the Unicode Consortium, the not-for-profit organisation responsible for digitizing the worldโ€™s languages, Tears of Joy accounts for over 5% of all emoji apply (the only other character that comes close is โค๏ธ and at that place is a steeeeeep cliff after that). The top ten emoji used worldwide are ๐Ÿ˜‚ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿฅฐ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜Š.โ€

The written report also notes that the top 100 emojis comprised 82 pct of all the emojis used. The Consortium says that the virtually used emojis from other categories are the ones that correspond multiple concepts:

  • ๐Ÿš€
    Rocket Transport
    symbolized progress and potential anticipation of significant changes. It can be found in the Ship-air category.
  • ๐Ÿ’ช
    Flexed Biceps
    topped the charts as the most used emoji in the Torso-parts category, excluding hands. Information technology symbolizes strength, success, overcoming a struggle, exercise, showing off, boasting, or rolling upward your sleeve to get vaccinated.
  • ๐Ÿ’
    Boutonniere of Establish-Flower
    plant use due to its versatility on all occasions: congratulations, celebrations, and relationships of many varieties, whether platonic or romantic.
  • ๐Ÿฆ‹
    is the most common Animal emoji (found in the Creature-Bug subcategory) representing alter, beauty, nature, and transformation.
  • ๐Ÿคธ
    Person Doing Cartwheel
    is the most pop Person-Sport emoji suggestive of happiness and joy.

Equally for the to the lowest degree-used emoji category โ€” you guessed it โ€” Flags.

โ€œThe least popular category? Flags. The least pop subcategory? State-flags. They represent the largest collection (258 emoji!) simply are used the least. Animal-mammal is the next largest subcategory (53 emoji!). Given that new emojis accept to demonstrate they are not overly specific and need to break new footing, this suggests animal emoji is at saturation level.โ€

Some other interesting ascertainment is that despite increased usage during the pandemic, merely the emojis ๐Ÿฅต and ๐Ÿฅด managed to enter the pinnacle 100 in 2022. ๐Ÿ˜ท moved upwardly from rank 186 to 156 while ๐Ÿฆ  made information technology into the top 500 past the skin of its teeth.

All this data is cool, but the Unicode Consortium explains that it collects the data to focus its efforts on the correct categories. The written report likewise serves equally a reminder to read Unicodeโ€™south guidelines for those interested in submitting proposals for new emojis.
