(WWBT) - July 17 is considered World Emoji Day.  Whether you have an Iphone or an Android device, emojis are a popular way of communicating on all devices.

#WorldEmojiDay started simply because it is the date shown on the iOs calendar, "July 17."

According to Oxford, an emoji is "a small digital image or icon used to express an idea, emotion, etc., in electronic communication"
