38 New Emoji Are Coming, Including a Selfie, a Pregnant Woman, and Bacon
I have to say I am one of those people that just doesn't get the whole emoji thing. Those face things people now send with just about every text message. So I guess this is bad news for me.
38 more of these bad boys are on the way. There's a organization called the Unicode Consortium that governs Internet standards, and that includes regulating the official set of emoji. Yes, there's actually an organization that regulates whether or not you can use a cartoon pile of poop.
Anyway, they just announced that they've approved 38 NEW emoji that will be added to the current set.
Some of the notable ones are: A clown face . . . a nauseated face . . . a drooling face . . . a hand holding a camera to take a selfie . . . handshake . . . a hand with the fingers crossed . . . a pregnant woman . . . a guy shrugging . . .
A man dancing . . . a wilted flower . . . a scooter . . . an avocado . . . a potato . . . bacon . . . a duck . . . an eagle . . . and a shark.
Looks like we should start seeing them by June of next year.
