What I’ve Got: Emoji on LINE, Wechat and Facebook

by post_author

One thing I found different between American and Asian is their usage of emoji on social media. For American no matter they use Whatsapp or Facebook, the selection of emoji is the same(because they are same company?) However, you can find a lot more variety on social media used by Asian. For example. a common chat app, LINE, which is popular in Taiwan, Korean and Japan, has hundreds of emoji and sticker to choose from when typing message. Also I have noticed that American seem to only use “:)” or “:D” and few of them even use the sticker from Facebook. On the other hand, when using Wechat or LINE, people sometimes do not have to type any text but can simply communicate using various stickers. It might be an interesting research t know what American think of using emoji and how they feel when people use a lot of emoji during the conversation.
