Where Emoji is Not Appropriate

Emoji is not always appropriate in all situations. While it may come very handy when talking to friends and relatives, it may not be that welcome in other situations. The following are some documents where emoji is not very suitable:

  1. 1
    Formal email communication
    .
    If you are sending a very important and formal email to your boss or client, inserting emoji icons will not give a good impression. Important emails normally require that you become upfront with what you'd like to say. Not only will emoji be rather distracting, it will also give the impression that you are not taking the communication seriously and that you are rather childish in your behavior.
