Do emojis have a place at work?

Emojis. The popular ideograms and smileys that are used to express feelings and illustrate words over social media.

Emojis exist in various genres such as facial expressions, common objects, animals and world flags and are often used to visually represent a written message. A 2015 study from AYTM Market Research found that 48.9% of US adults have used emojis in social media or text messages and this figure is likely to be far higher four years on. Yet, while emojis may be a helpful medium for expressing a person’s feelings, some may question whether they have a place in a professional working environment.
