Emoji, a Japanese word, roughly translates to pictograph. The popularity of emojis has skyrocketed with the use of mobile phones, texting and social media. Emojis are actual pictures in icon form, such as a taco or a yellow smiley face. They are a succinct, economical way to express the everyday stuff of life — facial expressions, ideas, food, locations, actions. Emoji provide imagery that is, for the most part, readily understood across languages, cultures, ages and religions.
