Eyecare Events: World Emoji Day July 17

Who remembers when all we had to use was a smiley face? There is a World Emoji Day and think about how much fun you could have with this on Facebook. Emoji contests, make your own Emoji, Favorite Emoji’s, Decorate your glasses with Emoji’s… Office Emojis

Eye Bogglers:

Emojis were invented in 1998 by  Shigetaka Kurita while working for DoCoMo. He wanted a way to send a message without text and there you have it. But Emoji did not become universal until Apple put them on their iPhone and then Android picked it up. Get this, the First International Emojicon conference was held in San Francisco, California on November 4, 2016. That was last year!

Of course we had to go on a search to see if we could find Emoji Eyewear and the first we found was the Post-It Note Eyewear which have Emoji Type Faces on Post It Notes. That was in 2011.
