Emojis have enabled a new way of web marketing on some of the best Indian social networking sites.Social Media marketers are now using them to connect with their audience. They are also using them for brand building. 

 

According to a report by app boy the following results were noticed in a study conducted:

·         Among other free social networking sites in India, Twitter results in 25.4% more engagement due to the usage of emoticons.

  

What are Emojis?

We are living in an age where emotions are communicated as digital messages, in the form of Emojis. In simple terms, an emoji is a small picture that can be placed within a text. They were created by a Japanese company in the 90s. Formed of two words; ‘e’ and ‘moji’, they refer to a pictograph.

 

Why are Emojis Suddenly So Popular? 

 

1.      They have a huge commercial and promotional ability especially on social media.

 

2.      Emojitracker lets you access real time data of most used Emojis on Twitter, 250 to 350 Emojis are tweeted per second around the world. This makes a total of more than 25 million a day on this social network alone!

 

3.      A study by University of Valencia identified these reasons as to why best social networking sites use emoticons:

  1. Visual Appearance, 13%
  2. Cuteness, 12%
  3. Imagination, 1%
  4. Expression, 27%
  5. Precision, 10%
  6. Happiness, 12%
  7. Ease, 6%
  8. Variety, 7%
