According to Market Watch, the most popular emojis being used are those featuring facial expressions. (Insert surprised face here.) From the emojis released in October 2015, those most used in texts include "nerd face," "thinking face," "upside-down face," and "slightly frowning face." (Nerd face? Really?) But of course, the most commonly used emojis overall are the "joy" face, and the "kissy" version, as well as the "rolling eyes face."
Not commonly used are emojis that don't express emotion, such as the taco and champagne bottle. What, you don't eat tacos and drink champagne every night like I do?
I predict the pregnant woman emoji will be big. At least among moms. Because there's no stronger emotion than pregnancy! Or at least the ones that come along with it.
