The Internet has changed our world. It can enrich our lives by providing entertainment, information, social networking, gaming, and connections to people all over the world. However, for some, internet use can grow into a problem. People may find themselves online-shopping, gaming, gambling, social networking, site surfing, blogging, stock trading, gambling, having cybersex, viewing pornography-to an extent that it interferes with their ability to keep up with school, relationships, and work, and/or has a negative effect on their mood. College students in particular may develop overuse of the Internet. Increased accessibility, a culture that supports computer and Internet use, and lots of unstructured time can lead to problematic Internet use in some students.

More than 50 million Smiley Face buttons were sold by 1971, and the smiley has been described as an international icon. Harvey Ball’s SmileyBall never applied for a trademark or copyright of the smiley and earned just $45 for his work. State Mutual, similarly, did not make any money from the design. Ball’s son, Charles Ball is reported to have said his father never regretted not registering the copyright.

the first person to register the mark for commercial use when he started using it to highlight the rare instances of good news in the newspaper France Soir. Subsequently, he trademarked the smile, dubbed simply “Smiley,” in over 100 countries and launched the Smiley Company by selling smiley T-shirt transfers. In 1996, Loufrani’s son Nicolas took over the family business and transformed it into an empire. He formalized the mark with a style guide and further distributed it through global licensing agreements including, perhaps most notably, some of the earliest graphic emoticons. Today, the Smiley Company makes more than $130 million a year and is one of the top 100 licensing companies of the world.

Subsequently, he trademarked the smile, dubbed simply “Smiley,” in over 100 countries and launched the Smiley Company by selling smiley T-shirt transfers. In 1996, Loufrani’s son Nicolas took over the family business and transformed it into an empire. He formalized the mark with a style guide and further distributed it through global licensing agreements including, perhaps most notably, some of the earliest graphic emoticons. Today, the Smiley Company makes more than $130 million a year and is one of the top 100 licensing companies of the world.

It caused an outcry, to the extent that young users left DoCoMo and signed up with another Pocket Bell company that had retained the symbol. That’s when I knew that symbols absolutely had to be part of any texting service. That was my main inspiration. As for the emoticon themselves, I drew inspiration from marks used in weather forecasts and from kanji characters. At first there were about 200 emoticon, for things like the weather, food and drink, and moods and feelings. I designed the “heart” symbol for love. Now Since the development of emoji there are well over 1,000 Unicode emoji. The original emoticon were black and white and confined to 12 by 12 pixels, so they were very simple and there wasn’t much variation. We couldn’t just

People of all ages understand that a single emoticon can say more about their emotions than text. Emoticon have grown because they meet a need among mobile phone users and have been altered through time transforming into emoji. I accept that it’s difficult to use emoticon & emoji to express complicated or nuanced feelings, but they are great for getting the general message across. After 1999, Eleven years later emoticon were translated into the Unicode standard — which means that a person in France, for example, can send an these newly aquired emoji to a person in the US and it will look the same, no matter what brand of phone or operating system they use. This quality has changed with companies such as Apple, Microsoft and google creating variations, which do depend on the phone you have. New York’s Museum of Modern Art announced on Wednesday that it has acquired the original set of 176 emojis. They were a gift to the museum from the phone company, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone. “From the start (in 1929), part of MoMA’s mission has been to display and collect the art (and design) of our time,” Paola Antonelli, senior curator of the museum’s department of architecture and design, said in an email. “Our time is lived today in both the digital and the physical space.” The museum’s other digital acquisitions have included the @ symbol and video games.

For example If I type :) into most messaging systems the output will no longer be emoticon but emoji. From an analyses of the smiley face we can clearly see that throughout history it has undergone extreme changes, variations and has remained as an iconic symbol. The symbol has gone though thousands of iterations and even as we advance technologically, so does the smiley face. You could say that the smiley was a fad, but its the fad that lives on through emoji. The original intension of the smiley face was to exonerate happiness and I question as to wether the emoji are a affecting factor of peoples happiness. According to google 44% of emoji users are using the happyface emoji and 14.3% of people use the sad faces more. A statistic like this insinuates the total number of smartphone users worldwide are happy. Emoji do they really exonerate happiness. personally I don’t think i’ve ever used an emoji outside an ironic context and thought to consider that this is a language.

Emoji culture After the realease of the higly popular emoticons came emoji. Emoji or emoji (plural same or emojis) are small digital images or icons used to express an idea or emotion in electronic communication: emoji liven up your text messages with tiny smiley faces. Emoji have become increasingly popular worldwide since their international inclusion in Apple’s iPhone, which was followed by similar adoption by Android and other mobile operating systems. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji derives from the Japanese letter e

meaning picture & moji meaning character.

Emoji like emoticon are used because they are an easier way to express emotion, although like Japanese kanji emoji are all about context and things that are said through emoji can often become miscontrued. Emoji are are all down to ones interpretation. The resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental. Many people make a connection between emoji & emoticon and presume they are in fact the same thing, which they certainly are not. An emoji has simply emulated from the culture of its predecessor the ‘emoticon’. Like all things from within our current digital culture, the emoji is what appears to be an export product of something that existed before (the emoticon). Emoticon and emoji have many similar characteristics such as the intention to convey emotion without actually doing so. Emoji are controlled and operate through the same code that was made for emoticons. Emoticons nowadays act as the underlying code for emotion. For example Emoji

The thing that inhibits the emoji as being the new vernacular language in a post digital culture’ is the fact that they only target a certain community of people. They only target a certain community of people with certain privilages.The focal points are not on the minority but on the majority of people. For example the emoji are not made for people who suffer from disabilities such as being blind or visually impaired. Its visual, I understand but to claim to be the first international language it must be made available to all as a uniform communication platform . It is a human right to communicate how we desire and not being able to use a certain communication systems essentially eliminates or ignores these rights. Could it be possible to create braille emoji? I mean I’m not suggesting in making them learn an entirely new language. Could it be possible to try and incorporate emoji into there language through technology. I mean even looking at people with visual impairments, it could be intersting using VR technology. With technology there are endless possibilties and really there is no excuse when design iterations should have all people included from the get go. The availability of apps has allowed for many great voice activated interaction systems to become an area of interest. Design should empower people (citizens) and not authourities (corporations). Emoji are slowly becoming a fad as they are being used as they are slowly becoming a way to sell products. Many companies have manifested their agenda through social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.


Uncicode consortuium An estimated 74% of Americans use emojis every day. They are used in text messages, Facebook posts and when we chat online. You can even text a pizza emoji to Domino’s to order a pizza. Yet, despite our avid usage of the yellow smiley faces, hand gestures, animal icons and poop emojis, few people know where emojis come from. Who designs them? Who decides which new emojis get added each year? Can anyone suggest an emoji? Or is there some kind of emoji illuminati that calls the shots? To answer these questions, The Times called Mark Davis, president and co-founder of the Unicode Consortium, the non profit Silicon Valley group responsible for emojis, among many other things. In addition to running the Unicode Consortium, which is largely a volunteer effort, Davis is also an internationalization engineer at Google who previously worked at IBM and Apple. When you say the Unicode Consortium is responsible for emoji, what does that mean? Our main focus is supporting the languages of the world, such as Chinese characters, Japanese characters, Cyrillic letters and others. We have roughly 7,000 characters slated for release this year, and roughly 70 are emoji. How many emojis are there today? 1,624. Mark Davis, co-founder of the Unicode Consortium. (Karina Davis)

Mark Davis, co-founder of the Unicode Consortium. (Karina Davis) Who gets to suggest emojis or decide which ones the consortium will approve? Anyone can propose an emoji character, but they have to make a solid case for it. The process and timeline are described on Unicode emoji website. It’s more than just saying, ‘Well, I think there should be a drunken chipmunk emoji.’ You have to give us some good reasons that would establish why it would be a successful and valuable addition. You also have to provide an image in black and white and in color of what it could look like. The image typically won’t be used by the vendor, but it gives us an idea of its intended appearance. My question is how do they approve of emoji which are bruised indicating that they or hurt or the bomb emoji and not approve the riffle emoji? Because we have this commnication is entirely accesible by anyone we can coverse in a way which we can say what we want whenever the f%*k we want. This language in a way has become a way of liberating what we say on social media. Social media as a platform has allowed for many great changes in language and in intelligence that anyone can publicly

but the fact

voice there own opinions

on thing like Facebook and Twitter, can often be dangerous. The internet is often used as a platform for diplaying hatred for someone, often racially targeted victims. This is another reason why emoji will not be the language of the future as due to the fact that they really entirely on context they can be used however people please.#facism#racism#2017

Bedraggled from a walk in the rain, Sherry Turkle shows up begging for a latte. She’s left her wallet in her hotel room. She’s exhausted, she says, and could do with a coffee. “You can see it’s not my most perky morning. But I’m really thrilled to be meeting with you.” These aren’t just pleasantries – Turkle has a serious point to make. As professor of the social studies of science and technology at MIT and the founder and current director of the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self, she has spent over three decades studying the way people interact with machines, and is growing increasingly worried about the amount of human interaction people are happy

we are becoming more alone together as we jide from each other even though we are more connected now than ever. We are sacrificing conversation for connection Devices don’t really care but they do find things that interests us and keep us entertained through an analyses of our search history. Patterns are developing more rapidlyy on our activity and not on our productivity. The feeling of being understood is vital to our mental well being and we are replacing the feeling to being understood with materialistic compassion and understanding. This is merely just the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship. We are becoming Lazier and whats easier is best. If we don’t have connection its as if we don’t feel like ourselves. Actual physical conversation is slowly becoming a fad ignore your phone. Go talk wih someone have a coffee, take a picture of that coffee and upload it to Instagram and don’t get consumed with the bad that the internet has brought, get consumed in its possitives. We tend to value each other more though what we do on social media and with social media improvements(?) we value what we do online a lot more. The significance of our online presence overides the significance of our actaul presence in todays world.
