Interesting Fact - Language

There is a language taking over the world, and it isn't English; it's Emoji.

(In a survey conducted by TalkTalk Mobile, 8 in 10 people use emoji symbols in emails and text messages, and 72% of British 18 to 25-year-olds said they found it easier to put their feelings across in emoji icons than in text.

The 10 most popular emojis are as follows:-

1- Smiley Face

2- Crying with laughter

3- Love heart

4- Blushing

5- Thumbs up

6- Cheeky face

7- Blowing a kiss

8- Winking face

9- Confused

10- See no evil monkey

However, different language speakers have their own preferences:-

Canadians seemingly enjoy using the smiling poop emoji.
The French use four times as many heart emojis than other languages.

Flower and plant emojis, particularly the rose, are used at more than 4 times the average rate by Arabic speakers.
