New Emoji Explained

My brain lately has been all emoji, all the time. Believe it or not, my most popular post on this blog is all about emoji! Each time a new set of emoji is released, I get requests to update my original Emoji Defined post. Well, I finally caved and put together this all-encompassing post to explain what all the new (as of late 2018) smiley and people emoji mean.

If the single life isn’t for you, emoji represent relationships with couples and families. Men and women, men and men, women and women…all the people!

At the very end of the Smileys and People section of emoji are the accessories. Hats, gloves, shoes, and…a ball of yarn. (Hey, who am I to judge?)

Can you believe that these are just the first section of emoji? There are still animals and nature, food and drink, activity, travel and places, objects, symbols, and flags.
