In recent months, WhatsApp has been at the forefront of communication platforms, bringing continuous innovation to its application. Over the past eight months, for example, the app has added a host of exciting new features. One of the big predictions for 2024 is the arrival of new emojis, such as the phoenix, mushroom, lemon, and sexy icons that symbolize “yes” and “no”.
However, among the already known icons, one symbol in particular has gained significant prominence: the clown emoji. This little symbol is often used in conversations, especially in groups, and even on new platforms like “X”. But, what is the real meaning behind these popular emojis?
WhatsApp and the true meaning of the clown emoji
- The smiling face of the clown often carries a humorous connotation and is associated with jokes and pranks.
- But the use of this emoji goes much further than that. And in modern times, it has become a true digital meme.
- Many people resort to this symbol to express their feelings of deception or sarcasm in a situation.
- However, in the WhatsApp environment, its meaning can vary slightly, depending on the context of the conversation.
- According to Emojipedia, a global authority on emoji interpretation, a clown’s face can represent that someone looks silly, naive, or even selfish in the eyes of the person sending it.
- Platforms like TikTok are also very popular, especially when you want to highlight characters or situations that are considered silly or silly. In other words, in addition to indicating that someone has been deceived, emoji can also indicate a lack of maturity or a lack of judgment.
- Another interesting fact is their labels are in English. While we refer to it in Portuguese as the “clown emoji” or “clown face,” in English it is known as “clown face.”
The origin of this emoji dates back to a few years ago. The representation of Clown Face was officially approved as part of Unicode Standard 9.0 in 2016 and was later added to Emoji 3.0 that same year. This means that although it has recently gained popularity in certain contexts, its presence across devices and platforms is nearly a decade old.
