Since hearing about the creation of Emojli, a new emoji-only social network earlier this week, the girls at I have been weighing up the pro’s and cons.
Emojli has yet to launch but has already accumulated close to 5000 followers on twitter not to mention that the number of usernames reserved jumped from the 10,000 mark on Monday to well over 50,000 by mid-week. And of course, that’s another thing worth a mention, emoji only really does mean emoji only. Even your username has to be emoji, so if you don’t want yours to be Paperclip-Noodle-Soup or some other sad combo, I’d hustle on over quick times and reserve yours too!
But, before you snub this trend for good, just think of the perks. How fun it will be challenging yourself to come up with new, creative ways to curse (more on that later!)
Plus it’s an argument free world, surely, because no wifey can misread the undertone of an emoji (unless it’s the dreaded winky face) like she can a text. There will be no selfies, no hashtags, no mean old trolls. Parents will love this for their chat heavy high schoolers, it’s just good, clean fun.,
I started out at the beginning of the week really not loving the thought of Emojli dominating a new social generation, but the more I think about it the better it gets. I mean, will it last a decade? Doubt it.
But what’s the harm? I’d recommend any haters out there put on their happy hats and adapt the ‘can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em’ attitude, because those tiny pixilated pictures aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and if you weren’t a fan of them before, get ready to have them all up in your business. I’m saying it here first; don’t be surprised if emoji motifs are outranking slogans in the annoying-trends-taken-too-far stakes by summer 15. We already got a glimpse of them during LC:M SS15! Check it out…
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one! A couple of my lovely blogger friends and I are already thinking up ways to celebrate the expected launch later this month // early August!
