Emoji Meanings: Why They Matter
Emojis are a powerful communication tool and can help level-up your social media content. They have become an integral part of pop culture, trends, memes, and even shaping new forms of online expression.
There is an emoji for everything. And each emoji has a different meaning. As a business owner, social media manager, creator, or entrepreneur, it’s important to understand what certain emoji mean so you use them correctly in your content.
Emojis and Accessibility
When including emojis in your content, remember that each emoji has their very own description, or alt text, assigned to it, and each emoji description is different depending on platform, device, and browser. There are three things to keep in mind when using emojis in your content:
- Use emojis in moderation
- Double-check emoji alt text descriptions
- Put emojis at the end of your caption
