    The end-to-end effect of this magic is that Apple can read your characters...so how about privacy ?

    Interesting - they can't see imessages but they can see what you type. I guess i'm going to stick with the stock/apple keyboard as well.

    I don't get the name, shouldn't that be called 'Laughing hard enough to tear up' or some such.

    I find it very hard to believe that the skull is there but not the poo.

    This is what happens when innovation ends...focusing almost exclusively on emojis.

    How in the world does Apple know this? My emojis should be encrypted!! Next we are going to get photo stats... "The #1 photo sent through iMessage is the Bathroom selfie."

    This makes me seriously question Apple's commitment to privacy.

    I have a feeling it could have been this one if Apple hadn't totally f-ed it up with iOS 10.

    That’s what I said!

    Chill out, I was trying to be light hearted, hence the wink.

    I was hoping to see "Police Car Revolving Light" on the list someplace ;) .

    We use that too much at work for little (trivial) emergencies.

    Emojis, when used properly, are an amazing way to make sure a message conveys the desired emotion.

    I feel like people who dont use them are more likely to get into conflicts/miss understanding or simply be misinterpreted.

    I really do use the upside down smiley too.

    I use it with smiley, upside down smiley, smiley in particular, to mean "oh well."

    It's like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ for me, but in proper emoji.

    Differential privacy. A wonderful Orwellian term.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_privacy includes an example to illustrate the following "individual information can be compromised even without explicitly querying for the information of a specific individual".

    Apple started using it in iOS 10.

    i use upside down when I'm being goofy, which is most of the time and the inquisitive smiley for sarcasm lol.
