It\u2019s hard to imagine living a life without emojis. Emoticons define our ranges of emotions. It\u2019s hard to live without social media or a smartphone to say. People communicate with their family and friends through emojis.\r\n\r\nNow, it\u2019s good news that a lot of emojis have been approved. And the first 2019 emoji list has been given the green light already by Unicode Consortium. There\u2019s no official number of how many emojis will be available this year, but perhaps, there are too many of them to count.\r\n\r\nTo be specific, Emojipedia states that this year, there is 230 brand new emojis that will arrive at major platforms. Of this recent batch, there will be 59 special additions, and 75 of them have gender variations.\r\n\r\nThere are highlights this year that people will love, and some of them are Sloth, Hindu Temple, and Flamingo. Most of these emojis might not be used regularly because probably most of us aren\u2019t aware of their existence.\r\n\r\nIt might be nice to explore them one at a time. There\u2019s so much to learn and enjoy, and there are myriad of ways to surprise friends when we communicate with them.\r\n\r\nSometimes when communicating, it\u2019s fun to send an icon instead of saying it through words. Cryptic messages can be fun. It\u2019s fun to make other people sometimes think with the intention of making them imagine what you\u2019re trying to say because that makes you feel important.\r\n\r\nIn the 2015 Unicode Standard, there\u2019s the skin tone support, in 2016 there are emojis to represent women, in 2017 gender inclusive icons were added, in 2018 there are hair color options.\r\n\r\nThe range of ideas, activities, and emotions covered by emojis are so wide, and in fact, they\u2019re so deep if we\u2019ll introspect what they mean.\r\n\r\nThis 2019, the scope of people that emojis represent gets wider. It now includes individuals with different disabilities, and Apple proposed this last year.\r\n\r\nThere will be a gender inclusive couple, and there will be emojis of people with varying tones of skin holding hands. We should be happy that emojis talk about social issues such as racism; in fact, it prevents apartheid.\r\n\r\nEven if a person doesn\u2019t intend to think about social issues, he might introspect about the issues that surround him just by a glance at these new upcoming emojis.\r\n\r\nThere\u2019s also the emoji blood drop, which symbolizes normalizing menstruation. It\u2019s a Plan International campaign that encouraged Apple to create this emoji. The original idea was bloodstained underwear, but it was not approved, and a blood drop emoji emerged.
