What is an emoji? Emojis are small cartoon symbols, typically representing emotions, places, or common objects. The emoji originated in 1999, when a Japanese cell phone company introduced emojis to the text message keyboard. In fact, the word emoji is derived from two Japanese terms meaning "picture" and "character." Soon, the smiling faces had taken the world by storm.

The smiley face on which many emojis are based has enjoyed a long history. Archaeologists recently discovered a 4,000 year old clay pot that has a simple smiley face painted on its side. One poet even included a "winky smile" emoticon, made from a semi-colon and parentheses, in a poem published in the 1600s. The yellow smiley face we know and love - with its round eyes and "U" shaped mouth - originated with advertising campaigns in the 1960s.

Emojis have various meanings. What does the kiss emoji mean? The gesture of blowing a kiss - also called an air kiss, a blown kiss, thrown kiss, or a flying kiss - is ubiquitous, found in cultures around the world. Depending on the culture, such kisses can be a sign of romantic affection or a general greeting.

Not only are emojis featured on messages, but on products and clothing as well. In 2017, the characters starred in their first animated film, The Emoji Movie.
