Why the topic of poop emoji
One of the things that makes us smartphone users smile enough is the poop emoji, the smiling dung that looks like the happiest thing in the world despite being what it is.
Poop emoji have been around practically since the birth of chats, and therefore instant communication from computers and mobile devices. First was Messenger, as nostalgics who still lived a adolescence using this program will remember. Later, other chats, both independent and from social networks, began to incorporate them into their tools, until -finally- ‘WhatsApp’ rose as the queen of mobile communication, making a wide range of these symbols available to us.
The fecal emoticon was approved by Unicode, the consortium formed by companies such as Apple, Google or Microsoft in charge of these tasks, in October 2010. From there, each company would adapt the so-called ‘pile of poo’ (“pile of poop” , translated into Spanish with little subtlety) creating his own ’emoji’.
