These are the most used emojis of 2021 πŸ˜‚ | Digital Trends Spanish

You know, in December we began to see counts of everything, and obviously emojis were not going to be the exception, so the Unicode Consortium, the pompous name of the organization that, among other things, makes sure that we can put emojis in WhatsApp or in this note πŸ˜‚, published the list of the most used emojis of 2021.

In short, the most used emojis of 2021 were these, in this order: πŸ˜‚ ❀️ 🀣 πŸ‘ 😭 πŸ™ 😘 πŸ₯° 😍 😊.

Yes, we are a society that luckily, we still have room for laughter, so the emoji that bursts out laughing and flat out cries with so much laughter is the most used emoji of 2021. πŸ˜‚

And there is an interesting fact. According to the Unicode Consortium, the use of πŸ˜‚ is equivalent to 5 percent of all emojis used, or in slightly clearer words, out of 100 sent emojis, five are laughing faces πŸ˜‚.

There are other interesting facts. The Unicode Consortium points out that, although there are 3,663 emojis – and requests to add new πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« continue to be received – a compact list of about 100 emojis represents 82 percent of the use of these icons.

Do you want more fun facts? Well, if we divide the emojis by category, there are some that are more used than others.

For example, for emotions the most used emojis are πŸ’‹ πŸ’Œ πŸ’˜ πŸ’ πŸ’– πŸ’— πŸ’“ πŸ’ž πŸ’• πŸ’Ÿ ❣ πŸ’” ❀ 🧑 πŸ’› πŸ’š πŸ’™ πŸ’œ 🀎 πŸ–€ 🀍 πŸ’― πŸ’’ πŸ’₯ πŸ’« πŸ’¦ πŸ’¨ πŸ•³ πŸ’£ πŸ’¬ πŸ‘οΈβ€πŸ—¨οΈ πŸ—¨ πŸ—― πŸ’­ πŸ’€. We don’t need much explanation to understand that of πŸ’‹ and for each one to explain what they use πŸ’¦ for.

Also, if it is about showing parts of the body with emojis, the most used is πŸ’ͺ because, of course, we live in the era of sporting. The Unicode Consortium does not indicate it, but we are sure that if this emoji πŸ‘ counted as part of the body and not as a fruit, the most used would be πŸ‘ and not πŸ’ͺ.

There are other data that seem less humorous to us, but they still say something about how we use emojis. In terms of clothing, the most used emoji in 2021 was πŸ‘‘, while for animals, this πŸ¦‹ was the most used.

Ah! And it turns out that no one (or well, almost no one) uses flag emojis.
