written by Ritika Nath | July 17, 2021

These days, emojis are a part of everyday life. Almost no conversation is complete without at least a few emoticons being exchanged. They are the simplest way to express your feelings without having to use words.

Every year on July 17, World Emoji Day is observed. Emojis can be seen on everything from WhatsApp to Instagram, Twitter to Facebook. In reality, the market is brimming with emoji-themed products such as cushions, blankets, coffee mugs, t-shirts, and more. Many new emojis have been created over the years and are widely used.

These little yellow graphic cartoons, on the other hand, are also misinterpreted. We frequently make assumptions about the meanings of these emojis and use them in ways that aren't intended. Let's take a look at some of the emoticons used on social media platforms and examine their actual meanings on World Emoji Day 2021.

Face of Desperation

While this yellow face appears to be on the edge of tears, it instead represents begging. It's also known as 'puppy dog' eyes. The emoji could also be used to express admiration or being moved by a love act.

Black-Horned Dancing Twins

This sign is used by a group of girls to express their excitement. This emoji's true meaning, on the other hand, is quite different. Moreover, the black horns are bunny ears! Bunny Girls are frequently used in cosplay because they represent sex appeal in Japanese culture.
