    How many people actually use the emoji keyboard? I just kinda think it's unnecessary.

    Use it multiple times everyday. Sometimes a tiny cartoony picture does a lot more than words ;)

    My wife and I use it all the time. She sent me this yesterday when I told her that my friends and I were going to the mall to scope out some hot girls...

    Emoji are perfect when your significant other is having a crappy day at work. Saying "So sorry" seems sarcastic in text form. Heck, MOST things seem sarcastic in text form.

    But not the little forlorn face with a bunch of flowers next to him. It cheers my wife up, and I appreciate it when she cheers me up with the little penguin chasing a fish.

    Go little penguin! You can do it!

    What's not to like?

    I would not have guessed that before this thread, but yes, you're right!

    I wonder if the OP is single...it's quote possible that outside of this nauseating love-speak, Emoji has no use in the real world.

    Same here, even when it sometimes takes me longer to find the icon than it would have done to type the word!

    I use it with my friends. Especially one guy who likes to communicate in emoji and memes. Such as when I mentioned I wanted to kill a co-worker (whom he also knew) he offered the suggestion of the fork and knife via emoji.

    The mrs loves to receives the purple hearts, or the smile-with-heart-eyes guy. it always manages to brighten her mood. Very useful way of communicating.

    I guess that'll teach the OP to question the necessity of cute. :p

    And I use emoji a lot. too. :)
