Abstract:- It is a rare occurrence to observe the rise of a new language amongst a population. It is an even more rare occurrence to observe the adoption of such a language on a global scale. Since the introduction of the emoji keyboard on iOS in 2011, the use of emojis in textual communication has steadily grown into a common vernacular on social media. As of April 2015, Instagram reported that nearly half of all text contained emojis and, in some countries, over 60% of texts contained emoji characters. For power users of social media as well as for marketers looking for audiences on these platforms, it is becoming increasingly imperative to capture emoji data and derive insight from its use; to better understand what intent or meaning the usage carries in the conversation. Jeff Weintraub, VP of Technology at theAmplify, a creative Brandtech Influencer Service and a subsidiary of You & Mr Jones, the World's First Brandtech Group, will briefly summarize the data science behind learning emoji representations and also present recent trends in emoji usage within the context of advertising and branded marketing campaigns on social media.
