When it comes to emojis, the future is very, very ... Face with Tears of Joy.Face with Tears of Joy, by the way, is a bright yellow happy face with a classic, toothy grin as tears fall.The Face was chosen by Oxford Dictionaries as its 2015 "word" of the year, based on its popularity and reflecting the rise of emojis to help charitable causes, promote businesses and generally assist oh-so-many-more of us in further expressing ourselves on social media and in texts.Unicode, cofounded and headed by Mark Davis in Zurich, has a big, big mission, of which emojis have a place: making sure all the languages in the world are encoded and supported across platforms and devices.Vivian Rosenthal is founder and head of Snaps, a platform on which keyboards full of branded images are launched, including marketing campaigns intended to support social causes, such as the plight of refugees.Rosenthal estimated somewhere around 6 billion emojis and stickers are sent every day across devices and services.Other age groups are in the game, but Tayfun Karadeniz said age isn't the entire story.He's the founder and head of EmojiXpress, a third-party app for iOS that supplies users with every emoji available in the Unicode Standard. He's also a new voting member of the Unicode Consortium.Of roughly 50 million downloads of his app over the last three years, 80 percent of his users are female.
