Emoji (絵文字, えもじ) are symbols or smiley faces used in text messages on a mobile phone. They are all shapes and sizes and can mean lots of things depending on when and how it is used. There are emoji for objects, places, emotions, and many more.
The first emojis were created in 1998 by a Japanese man. Later on, people began to put emojis on webpages, and they became very popular outside Japan when they were added to Apple's iOS and Google's Android software.
