To think phone emojis are shit and mumsnet ones are amazing?

So, I have around 75 emotion emojis on my phone yet struggle to adequately portray how I am feeling. The vast majority are weird or useless. For example there is nothing that resembles confused or hmm.

Mumsnet have 10 and I have never felt the need for anymore than that grin.

I particularly like the hmm.....

The MN ones are all you need.

I totally agree. In fact most days I have at least 50 hmmmoments and more recently about 100 confused moments. Someone remind me of the meaning of the biscuit?

Sparklingbrook Fri 26-Feb-16 12:25:48

The biscuit is supposed to mean 'No Comment'.

Yes - the phone ones are too try-hard, mn emojis are classic.

MN ones are the only ones I've ever liked. The phone emojis are just litter angry

I so wish I had hmm and confused for Facebook.

I love the hmm face, there is nothing on the phone emojis that even comes close.

However, I do love 😱 this and 😂 this face and think they portray a level that shock and grin just don't cover.

I have some great ones on my tablet but they look completely different when posted on MN, not sure why they change.
Using MN smilies are a pain as I have to press 3 buttons to get to the brackets on the keyboard,

hmm love this face. My phone emoji updated the other day but still nohmm angry

I was going to post the same thing. What does my frequent desire to use hmm say about me though?!

Sparklingbrook Fri 26-Feb-16 12:32:24

Non MN emojis make me hmm especially (as I have said many times) I can't see them all on MN, they appear as tiny squares. That makes me confused

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Fri 26-Feb-16 12:36:03

hmm & confused are personal favourites of mine. I rarely use my phone emojis except on instagram.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Fri 26-Feb-16 12:38:32

Oh & I try & strike through in text message a lot. Usually those that I'm sending to DH grin

JeanneDeMontbaston Fri 26-Feb-16 12:44:11

YY, totally agree.

Other emoticons just feel wrong.

BertieBotts Fri 26-Feb-16 12:46:51

The scream one is okay, I don't like the crying with laughter one. grin is much better. The heart eyes one is vomitous and the smug closed eye smile one is just begging for a slap.

I like the MN ones...but I've always thought it needs a 😐

FankEweVeryMuch Fri 26-Feb-16 12:55:55

The new emojis have cleared up a lot of my angst but we need a fingers crossed one.

This is the best 🤔 And the jazz hands one 🤗

Sparklingbrook Fri 26-Feb-16 13:18:01

Fank they are little squares for me.

SpuriouserAndSpuriouser Fri 26-Feb-16 13:20:35

hmm hmm hmm

If they could just put the hmm face on iPhone emojis I would be happy. There are so many situations when I wish I had it!

DiamondStuddedFlunkie Fri 26-Feb-16 13:26:59

Just counted FIFTEEN phone emojis to portray sadness, yet no sarky eyebrow hmm....

Maybe it's because mumsnet is British and we tend to have hmm and confused moments more often?

Sparklingbrook Fri 26-Feb-16 13:28:23

How is it that I can see Phil's but not Fank's emojis? confused

RDWRER Fri 26-Feb-16 13:28:23

I use the 🐋 (whale) surprisingly frequently. YABU until MN add a whale.

RDWRER Fri 26-Feb-16 13:30:11

Hmm, the whale that appeared in my pp doesn't look nearly as impressive as the one I typed in, which had a "haters gonna hate" expression on its little whale face.
