Increasing demands of emoji app due to the rising popularity of emojis
Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process. All of us communicate with people that we come in contact both directly and indirectly every day. When we are having a face to face conversation with anyone we can easily see their facial expressions and we are able to guess if that person is bored, happy, sad, smiling, angry etc. Similarly we can also determine their mood on the phone to an extent just by listening to the tone of his or her voice. However, communicating through text messages is much more difficult to detect the mood of someone. Detecting a person's mood by the person's tone of writing is not an easy task. There is a slight chance to misunderstand a person's thoughts or the message that he or she might be trying to convey. Due to no facial expressions, tone of voice or body language, it's hard to interpret the words, thus the problem arises. The receiver can't understand whether the sender intended to be humorous, sarcastic or ironic. This makes a difference in the way in which that message is conveyed and understood. To sort this problem out, keyboard symbols or emotional symbols were created. Gradually #emojis evolved and the #emoji_app started to get installed in the phones. Android devices support #emoji_app differently depending on the operating system version. Several third-party messaging and keyboard applications for Android operating system phones also provide plugins that allow the use of #emoji. Smileys are created by internet users to save keystrokes and to add emotions to their message. Thus, these are informal internet expressions that are not considered appropriate for formal occasions. Most of the people are obsessed about #emoticons, their conversation comprises of at least one of them because they can say basically whatever they want. Majority of the people loves #emojisapp as it contains all the possible emoticons and it's easy to access. Traditional smileys are now being replaced by #emoticons and even animated icons. It's the graphical representation of smileys. One advantage of graphical smileys is that they are easier to decipher, because of the graphic face that we can interpret more easily from our daily interaction. Interestingly it can sometimes in a message confuse the receiver in terms of what mood they are trying to convey. Thus, graphical smileys are very widely used. #Emoticons today are very popular and are used in e-mails, chat rooms and Web forum posts also. There are also special programs that have been developed that can easily be downloaded to your computer as well as others that can easily be inserted into emails and browsers. Chat icons are instrumental in depicting our real emotions during a chat. People mainly use them while chatting on Facebook website or while messaging via other chat apps. Showing graphical icons in our texts allow the recipient to reckon what we exactly want to convey in the message. The use of smiley's can range from showing anger to happiness.
