BBM’s Most Popular Emoji — and What It Says About Our Users

Inside BlackBerry for Business Blog

Reacting to emojiBBM users love their emoji. We use millions of them in chats every day. The chart below shows the most popular among BlackBerry OS/BBM users from a week in September.

A note of clarification: I’m using the terms “emoticons” to refer to the text-based character combinations meant to be read sideways — e.g., 🙂 smiling, and “emoji” to refer to the related-but-different tiny graphics – e.g.  emoji1 smiling. (And don’t forget the  emoji2hot dog.)
