Do You Know the Hidden Meaning of Each Heart Emoji?
It seems like every time I get used to one set of emojis on my phone someone creates a whole new batch of them and starts sending those to me. too. Emojis are just one more way we've taken out language skills and set them back a few hundred years.
We worked so hard to get our language off of the cave walls in the form of crudely drawn pictures and the difficult-to-draw hieroglyphics of Ancient Egypt are even more difficult to understand for those of us that spent most of our adult years learning to use our words instead speaking in pictures.
The confusing thing about emojis is this, like words certain emojis, might look similar but their meanings can be total opposites. Or the meaning can have nothing to do with what you think the emoji means. A groggy face to me might mean "taking a nap" while the actual meaning of the groggy face emoji might mean too drunk to drive.
It truly is a language within a language and like flowers, it's the color of certain emojis that changes the meaning altogether especially when you are using or want to use the "heart" emoji. The heart comes in seven eye-catching colors and they all mean something a little different.
