The Burning Question*: Is the use of emojis by adults ever acceptable?

Let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s a Bank Holiday Monday, the fear is about to set in and you’re already thinking about ironing shirts and making lunch.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: How do you feel about emojis? informed us last week that there is a faction of people mobilising against the little cartoon images. Some think they are for kids only, while others think they are dumbing us down.

But staunch users will argue that they can be more useful than words to convey emotions and avoid any awkward misunderstandings through texts (if she’s included a kissy-face or heart eyes, we’re not asking, “What did she mean?”), as well as just being a bit of craic. 

What do you think? Is the use of emojis by adults acceptable?

Poll Results:

Yes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (7884)
No, absolutely not (1288)
Yes, except for the cry laughing face (794)
