To not understand emojis?

Apart from the obvious ones, smiley faces, thumbs up, bottles of champagne, aeroplanes etc? A lot of the facial expressions just seem a bit obscure to me; or am I just out of touch and lacking in emotional intelligence?

I don't think you're lacking in emotional intelligence but I don't understand what you're not understanding ha. Have you any examples?

I was just thinking about this earlier. I think I understand them but was pondering some of the face ones and wondering if I think they mean the same thing as other people

Which ones dont you understand?

On mn desktop they have little names

Hmm means sceptical
confused means confused
envy means envy
blush means embarrassed
shock means shocked

If you're on the phone the open mouth is shock, the green face is envy, the red face is angry...

Or is it that you dont know why they are used?
For context

You cow

You cow angry
you cow grin
you cow envy
you cow wink

An emoticon can show a meaning. When we only have words its so easy to misread intent. The emoticons help with this

You mean on your iPhone or on here?

NavyandWhite Wed 24-Aug-16 16:29:28

Sorry you meant your phone.
Yes I understand OP. I'm a bit like that.

Hmm, not sure. There's a chunk blacked out on this one 🍙 too. It reminds me of crazy golf somehow!
