With the year 2021 nearing the end, there are those who are already beginning to take stock of some of the milestones of the year. This reflection exercise was recently developed by the Unicode Consortium and focused on the most popular emojis in 2021.

This non-profit organization looks at the different languages ​​that are used in the world and has not overlooked the phenomenon of emojis. In fact, their findings reveal that the most used this year was the “face with tears of joy.”

Here are the 10 most used emojis in the world in 2021

  1. πŸ˜‚
  2. ❀️
  3. 🀣
  4. πŸ‘
  5. 😭
  6. πŸ™
  7. 😘
  8. πŸ₯°
  9. 😍
  10. 😊

The leader of this table, according to the source, represents more than 5% of all the emojis used in the world. It seems like a very small number, but it was enough to be the most used during 2021.

Interestingly, those who prophesied the death of the “face with tears of joy” emoji saw their predictions clearly disproved by this report from the Unicode Consortium. Their findings reveal that this is far from being forgotten by netizens.

In second place in the table, the “heart” appears as the only one capable of approaching the frequency with which the leader was used by Internet users. The remaining places, according to the Unicode Consortium statements, are quite far away.

Communication over the Internet is becoming more and more common and the use of emojis has become one of the most popular solutions to express feelings. These dolls are sometimes clearer than a few sentences.

Therefore, it is not surprising that 92% of the Internet population uses emojis in their communications. The main online communication platforms already support them, so it is difficult to ignore their existence.

What appeared to be the most popular emoji in the world is not even in the top twenty most used in 2021. I mean the “slightly smiling face” which, in the chart just published, appears only in position 28.

The source also points out that, in the last two years, there was only one swing in this top-10. There was only one exchange of positions, among them, of the emojis positioned in the seventh and eighth position, which shows that Internet users are consistent in this form of communication.
