How Emojis Have Transformed Communication


Grotto’s Slack channel recently blossomed with an interesting exchange about emojis. 

It all took place as we near World Emoji Day on July 17 — Grotto’s social media manager, Emily Mentock, was proposing that we publish a story to celebrate the role emojis play in our social communication. Grotto’s editor, Josh Noem, had concerns about emojis degrading the value of the written word

Here’s their exchange — you decide who’s right. 

“Ease of communication” vs “the power of the written word”

“Words should be precise” vs “sharing a feeling”

A balanced diet
