Using emojis in WhatsApp conversations or other social networks is a very common practice on the Internet. When you don't know what to write, a happy or sad face, for example, can demonstrate what the person is thinking or feeling at that moment. However, it is important to remember that the meaning of some icons may not be clear to all users and therefore the interpretation tends to be varied. The misconception may be even greater considering that iPhone (iOS), Android, and Windows Phone emojis are different.
Unicode publishes standards on what emojis mean, but they are not always used correctly. After all, they may have unique meanings within certain groups. The Snapchat social network, for example, has its own unique set of emojis. To make your life easier and prevent misinterpretation in future conversations, the TechTudo listed the meanings of some of the most popular figures on WhatsApp.
