One of the interesting things about social media is that it is programmed in such a way that you can actually pass your information without typing anything. Just with the use of emojis, Social Media got more interesting than ever.

With the use of Emojis, people can easily express their feelings without actually saying word. Personally, I use emojis on WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram and they are very fun to use.
