In this day and age, people love to have style when it comes to the way they communicate with other people. They use emojis to make things fun when they send text, chat, and even when posting on social media platforms. Also, the best part is that they use it to express themselves and send a direct message without using words when people talk to someone. Ultimately, there will be more engagement and interaction when posting or commenting on the right emoji to your social media accounts.

You need to deliver the correct messages when you communicate with other people, especially using the right emojis so that the recipient will understand you better. For you to learn more about how to apply the right emojis when you express your thoughts and engage with others, we put down a list of standard emojis with meanings so that you can use them in different scenarios. So here’s an emoji guide and what you need to know about them.

B Emoji 🅱️

This emoji type represents the B Blood Type. It is displayed in a red-color background with a B in the center. The B emoji is often used online in replacing the C letter that starts in a word from the Bloods practice of street gangs like transforming words like cool to bool. The b emoji is also part of the Unicode 6.0, which was approved way back in 2010. It is also under the name “Negative Squared Latin Capital Letter B,” and they add it to the Emoji 1.0 way back in 2015.

This emoji type also evolved as a means to notify the Bloods through online, and it was appropriated by culture on the internet for racist or absurdist memes. Also, some people use B emoji to be more creative and replace the letter B in words on social media platforms.

Nail Polish Emoji 💅

Like what you have guessed, this emoji type can be mean to express your level of indifference or casualness. Other people also believe that it means “I am prettier than anybody else” or to demonstrate a confident or arrogant behavior. Still, commonly, people use it for other reasons than to express relaxation or nonchalance.

For instance, people might use this emoji to interact with an audience through writing, “This Saturday is going to be my relaxation day(nail polish emoji). What are you going to do on the weekend? Leave your answer in the comment section so that I’ll know.”

Angry Face Emoji 😠

While this emoji type is no doubt to be among the most popular emoji that family and friends use, it should be an emoji that you need to avoid using in businesses. It’s commonly used in expressing strong dislike or disapproval over something, which probably means a negative thought that you might want to avoid delivering to other people.

A person should use angry face emoji when they communicate with someone they know, one on one.  For example, if you send a message to your friend saying, “Oh God! The movie tickets are sold out. I’m so mad right now! (angry face emoji)”

Thinking Emoji 🤔

People commonly use this thinking emoji to show a person that their thought is deep or questioning the validity of a word or something. They can also use it to express or deliver their doubt, like saying, “hmmm, I’m not quite sure about that,” about something controversial or questionable.

For example, take a look at some people’s thoughts about a Facebook user’s integrity that questions whether there are people who generate fake likes. Relatively, people should be civilized enough not to fight with each other through comments; instead, they can express their feelings and thoughts by using emojis that are accurate. Alternatively, people can also use this thinking emoji in a poll or question on social media, merely creating a visual indication that you want the audience to be involved and to think about something

Takeaway

Communication is always the key to everything. While you can use emojis to express your thoughts or feelings, using the right emojis should always be kept in mind. Always make sure that when you post in social media or message someone with emojis, use the right and fit emojis so that you won’t deliver the wrong thoughts or message to your audience or recipient.
