I’ve assumed emojis came from emoticons, the ASCII text smileys. But, I’ve got a new theory now.
Did emojis really start as wingding/ webding fonts and evolve into their current versions, dragging along the yellow smiley along the way?
I don’t see how emojis have much in common with the emoticons. An emoji is far more an image than a smiley.
What do you think?
