A Smiley Is Not a Smile
What is a emoji? Well, if you don’t know, please look at these things —— 😊😂🤣😍😒😘😁😉😎😜😢Try to use different systems or devices, you will find them different
Emojis started in Japan in the late 1990s. They quickly became very popular. More than six billion of them are sent every day around the world. There is even a World Emoji Day, which is on July the 17th every year.
However, a research says using smiley face emojis in work e-mails could do harm to your career.
A university in Israel reports that people putting emojis in work mails are easier to be thought of as being unable. Researchers did experiments on
549 people from 29 countries to check their reaction to emojis. The people had to judge the ability and warmth of the e-mail writer.
Dr Ella Glikson said, “Compared to actual smiles, smileys do not increase the feeling of warmth and actually reduce the feeling of ability… In formal business e-mails , a smiley is not a smile.
Another research shows that emojis are often misunderstood. This is related to how the reader or viewer understands the emojis.”
In other ways, technological problems could mean that an emoji typed by the writer is shown differently in the e-mail read by the reader.
This is because the writer and reader use different software or operating system for their computers, mobile phones and so on.
