Its Sunday Funday! The history behind Emoji!


It Sunday Funday today and we are talking about emojis. Emojis originated from Japan. The word Emoji literally means “picture” (e) + “character” (moji).In Japanese, the plural version of emoji is emoji.

Shigetaka Kurita invented Emoji in 1998 when the cellphone was just starting to become popular in Japan. The craze at that time was to send images to each other. Shigetaka Kurita was working for DoCoMo a large Japanese mobile company. He wanted to create a way for users to send pictures back and forth without using data. His idea was simple; create one character “code” that would display as an icon on the other person’s device. Emoji became a widespread success in Japan. Now more and more people use the Emoji. Now celebrities are all about the crazy fun of emoji by adding their own flare into. From the original KIMOJI by Kim Kardashian to basketball superstar Stephen Curry who made StephMoji, Justin Bieber who also made Justmoji and more. Emoji are a fun way to communicate and emoji are very universal. We all use it to communicate with our loved one that we text. Emoji is such a great invention that we are all about. To emoji or not to emoji? We say yes to emoji but be very selective on who you send emoji too. If you are working and you’re sending your boss something make sure it’s appropriate to the sender.
