Emoji (絵文字, えもじ) are symbols or smiley faces often used in text messages on a mobile phone or computer. 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. Emojis are normally used when people text each other.
The first emojis were created in 1999 by Shigetaka Kurita. 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.
