Do you use the emoji pack of your phone's keyboard?

Do you use the emoji pack of your phone's keyboard?
With the stock Android and iOS keyboards, as well as most third-party ones now featuring emoji - those little Japanese ideograms/smileys that are proliferating around the globe, we wanted to ask you how often do you actually use those funny characters to express emotions while chatting with or messaging someone.

Emoji packs are becoming a huge draw towards various third-party keyboards, and are very often the only paid aspect of those apps, along with various theming options. That's all fine and dandy, but, unless, you are a 12-year-old girl, or live in Asia, emojis, save for a smiley face or two, are not at the top of everyone's list when conversing via their mobile device. 

When the option is there, though, people are more inclined to use it, that is why we are curious to find out if the inclusion of emoji in most virtual keyboards has increased their actual usage. Take your pick in the poll below, and throw in some argumentation in the comments section.

I use emojis all the time
I sometimes throw in an emoji here and there
A smiley face is enough for me, I don't use emojis
