Power of emoji

I used to chat a lot in the year 2014 and 2015. What I noticed is that it is easier to misunderstand each other or argue on texts. But using a smiling emoji can help someone understand that you are not judging them or that your intentions are good Do you like plain text or texts with emoji?

Since I tease a lot, it is best to use emojis so people don't think I'm being an a**hole. I don't like to hurt anyone's feelings or be rude to them.

I like your thinking. That is gentle of you to care about other people's feelings. Keep it up

@mildredtabitha Thanks. I have had my feelings hurt too many times not to care about the way I treat other people. A caring person makes a better friend.

@DaddyEvil me too. I've been hurt too when I was new to internet. But now I don't take everything to heart and I don't over think it. I just let it go and I understand people. And I forgive quickly. Welcome I agree with you

I'm glad you use it here. I also don't use them when I text on phone. Only when I chat online

I don't use emojis much as they can be wrongly interpreted sometimes. I always prefer to do a plain text while messaging.

That's a very good reason. I understand your point. Emojis could be misinterpreted. I just find plain texts to be a little serious

Emojis can help yes and lighten up the seriousness of something we may say.

That's why I like using them here . . . a little facial expression can add to the tone of the words .

I like emoji. Sometimes I just send emoji alone to let somebody know that I remember them.

That's is nice. And that method is very easy to remind someone of your presence. I like emoji too
