History of World Emoji Day
World Emoji Day was founded by Jeremy Burge, the founder of Emojipedia in 2014. July 17 has been selected for the iconic red and black apple calendar emoji from its launch in 2002. It was put together as a celebration of emoji (textual expression of emotion which came about in the old days of Japanese smartphones). From there, these pictographic displays of emotion exploded into worldwide use. The term “Emoji” is derived from the two Japanese words e (for picture) and Moji (character). New emojis are developed every year, and emojipedia.org keeps track of all the emoji updates across all platforms and operating systems. There are nearly 1800 emoji’s covering more than emotions. From food, transportation, an assortment of wild and domesticated animals to social platforms, weather and many emoji’s are available.
