ANYTHING you can think off – a facial reaction or an object – there is an emoji made for it and it doesn’t always carry the simple meaning of representing simply what it is.
Let’s take the fire emoji for example, while it can represent fire, this emoji has many hidden meanings that we will tell you all about.
