Emoji variations may confuse people, but everyone recognizes sexting emoji

Can people tell what you’re saying when you only speak in emoji? Well, it depends on what you’re sending.

The depiction of emoji differ slightly from smartphone to smartphone, and a study recently explored the kind of miscommunication that can occur. Instead of comparing different emoji between devices, Jimmy Kimmel sent out his staff with several emoji and asked the people of Los Angeles what the symbols meant to them.

In this case? Most of them are on the same page.
