History lesson

The evolution of emoji

The history of emoji begins in the late 1990s in Japan. Shigetaka Kurita, a designer at NTT DoCoMo, created the first set of 176 emojis for mobile phones in 1999. These simple 12x12 pixel icons were designed to convey emotions and information efficiently, complementing the existing text-based communication.

The use of emoji quickly spread in Japan, and by the early 2000s, other mobile providers adopted similar sets. The real breakthrough came when Apple included an emoji keyboard in its iPhone in 2011, making them globally popular. Emojis became a universal language, transcending cultural and linguistic barriers.

In 2010, the Unicode Consortium, responsible for standardizing text across computers, adopted emoji, ensuring consistency across platforms and devices. Since then, the library of emojis has expanded significantly, reflecting diverse cultures, professions, and interests. Today, emojis are an integral part of digital communication, with new additions regularly introduced to keep pace with evolving social norms and technological advancements.

The origin of emoticons

Before emojis became a staple in digital communication, emoticons paved the way for expressing emotions through text. Emoticons, short for "emotion icons," use simple combinations of keyboard characters to represent facial expressions. The earliest known use of emoticons dates back to 1982, when computer scientist Scott Fahlman suggested using :-) and :-( to distinguish jokes from serious messages on a university bulletin board. These clever character combinations quickly caught on, becoming a popular way to convey tone and emotion in the early days of digital communication.

Emoticons provided a creative solution to the limitations of text-only communication, allowing users to inject personality and clarify intent in their messages. They were especially popular in early internet forums, chat rooms, and emails, helping to bridge the gap between written words and face-to-face conversations. Over time, emoticons evolved into the more sophisticated and colorful emojis we use today, but their legacy remains an important part of digital communication history.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
