Do you use smileys / emojis?

Asked by Stinley (11505points) May 26th, 2016 from iPhone

Are they just for teenagers? I quite like them? Can you use them on Fluther?

I am trying one here

canidmajor's avatar

I love them, but I’ve never seen them work here, except for the ones you make with punctuation.
I have been told that it’s inappropriate of me to use emojis, as I am not a 13 year old girl, but I have done many inappropriate things and nobody died so I’ll continue to take my chances.

Jak's avatar

No. I have a vocabulary which is perfectly capable of expressing anything I wish to convey.

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

Sometimes! Why not? As long as we aren’t using them habitually. Sometimes they perfectly express how I’m feeling.

dammitjanetfromvegas's avatar

I use them at times, especially on facebook.

btw- I’m 45. =)

dxs's avatar

No and I don’t like them. I don’t have a fancy phone, so they just come up as black and white squares for me.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

I use them a lot in text messages. I like them.

I do not think they are appropriate to use on Fluther. Puh-leeze!

ucme's avatar

Yes, I tried them on here ages ago & I think I was the only one who saw them

Mimishu1995's avatar

I still do :) It’s just that my emoticons is less immature than it used to :/ Things like :)))))) are out of the picture now :D

Sorry, that usually doesn’t happen, it’s just been a long time.

Jeruba's avatar

No. I dislike them and never use them.

Stinley's avatar

I can see the one I put here. Can anyone else? What did I do differently?

johnpowell's avatar

I actually like them. Sometimes I am a dick and they help to let people know I haven’t had my morning tea yet and transformed into a rainbow machine yet.

ibstubro's avatar

I saw that one, @Stinley, and wondered how you did it.

I like emoticons emojis and use them occasionally on Fluther.
I think they’re a simple way of taking the ambiguity out of a lot of statements. Snark or not. :-)

ucme's avatar

I can put them in my answer box thingy but when I post they’re gone

stanleybmanly's avatar

I receive a bunch. There must be a million varieties of the things. Sometimes I try to hunt one of them out from the lists in this phone. Apparently I have way too much spare time.

stanleybmanly's avatar

Let’s see if I can make the thumbs up emoji show up here.

stanleybmanly's avatar

Nope. Didn’t take

Pachy's avatar

More than I used to but nowhere near as often as some of my friends. Frankly, I find them just shy of annoying.

Tbag's avatar

@Seek That’s my favorite!

Mariah's avatar

Pretty sure we can only post unicode characters on Fluther, so only emojis that have a unicode equivalent (see examples) will take.

ibstubro's avatar

Rot row.
I hope @Mimishu1995 doesn’t see that, @Mariah

This is the one I used☹️

Stinley's avatar

It worked! On my iPhone but in Desktop view… ☹️

Stinley's avatar

I can only get the sad face to work. This makes me feel ☹️

ragingloli's avatar

I do not often use emoji,

Wow! that looks like an awful lot of work!

The Emoji Wars.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Never really thought about it, but if you see any (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) let me know.

Mimishu1995's avatar

OK :)))))))))))))))))))))))

XOIIO's avatar

@stanleybmanly Yup, control c and v is hard lol

2davidc8's avatar

Those are pretty cool Unicode emoticons at that website, @Mariah. Thank you!
Do you know of any others?

JLeslie's avatar

I use a few. I use the sunflower, palm tree, smiley faces, smiley with sunglasses, frown face, frustrated face, sun, gift box, cars, hearts, Christmas tree, that’s all I can think of right now.

ibstubro's avatar

ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ

raise your dongers??
Yeah, that’s one I’m going to use a lot!

cookieman's avatar

Hmmm, let’s try…

☹️

cookieman's avatar

I added in six random emojis and only the sad face shows on Fluther.

ibstubro's avatar

⚡ ☠

Damn, this is random!

ibstubro's avatar

You can copy/paste those

ibstubro's avatar

♣️ ⚜

♦ Black Diamond Suit
♥ Black Heart Suit
♠ Black Spade Suit
⚜ Fleur-De-Lis

AshlynM's avatar

Yes. :D Sometimes I find them more useful to express what I’m feeling. They don’t appear to work on here though.

Stinley's avatar

I like having the option but I’m just not sure I’m ever going to need the fleur de lis!⚜

ibstubro's avatar

⚜ perhaps more useful than the biohazard ☣?

They just seem really random. I probably tried a couple hundred to get that handful.
⚡ was even an accident.

cookieman's avatar

☹️⚜

cookieman's avatar

We need a Fluther-safe emoji glossary.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@cookieman and it should be included in the guideline!

tedibear's avatar

Yes, I use them, mostly for silly fun texts. As well, my husband isn’t big on long messages, so there are a few that I use to tell him when I have left work and where I am stopping on the way. Four or five emojis instead of two sentences works best for us.

Stinley's avatar

I always think of ⚡️ as the Harry Potter emoji

ibstubro's avatar

@ragingloli knows at least a few more simple ones. I’ve seen them used here – that’s how I started with skull and crossbones.

Mariah's avatar

Here’s another page of unicode letters; this section is specifically emoticons that I think Fluther supports.

ibstubro's avatar

Unless I’m doing something wrong, none of those worked for me.

Mariah's avatar

Huh, yeah, they didn’t work for me either. Guess my theory of “Fluther supports all unicode” is out the window. SHRUG

ibstubro's avatar

It seems really random.
Maybe there were certain characters supported in the base when the developers started? Like the card suits?
