Social Media finds another way to Stalk you

According to a recent report, 74 percent of people in the U.S.  regularly use emojis. They have become a daily part of social media users’ lives and marketers are starting to take notice.   Twitter has just announced it will start using “emoji-based” targeting, which will be used to help advertisers to target consumers who tweet certain emojis.

So you might wanna think twice before you post a harmless poop emoji… you might get hit with an ad for a poo emoji pillow or perhaps some post-poo drops.

What the new Snapchat emojis mean

snapchat-emoji-update-1

If you’re anything like me, you don’t fart unless you Snapchat it.  You don’t lip-sync a song on the radio unless you Snapchat it… and you certainly — under no circumstance — poop without Snapchatting it.

So, like me, you undoubtedly have seen the new emojis next to your friends’ names in Snapchat.  BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!?

TechCrunch explains:

💛- Gold Heart – You’re #1 Best Friends – The person you send snaps to most sends snaps to you most too

😬- Grimace/Grit Teeth – You Have A Mutual #1 Best Friend – The person you send snaps to most is also who this person sends snaps to most

😊– Smile – One Of Your Best Friends – This is one of the people you send snaps to most

😎- Sunglasses – You Have A Mutual Best Friend – One of the people you send snaps to most is also one of the people this person sends snaps to most

😏- Smirk – You’re Their Best Friend But They’re Not Yours – You’re one of the people they send snaps to most, but they’re not one of the people you send snaps to most

🔥- Fire – You Two Are On A Snapstreak – You and this person have sent snaps back and forth for the number of consecutive days shown

Now, how’s abouts some funny Snapchats?
