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.

Bro I feel for you, the graphics when I was single were sexy fine & athletically jiggly... (If you get my drift) I think you need to look at some better graphics! lol Real life is where it's at. Please get out more & more!

I don't use third party emojis because I don't even know if other people without the emojis installed can see them

I'm pretty sure they see the version of the emoji that is installed with their keyboard...

Terrible PA's comment section doesn't even support them. On other sites, I use them from time to time, but not here because your comment section sux.

9. gaming64 unregistered

Yep. Very true. The comment section doesn't support emojis which really sucks. But at least we wont have anyone posting vulgar presentations with emojis.

I use the emoji's in the samsung keyboard, I think they look better and more natural than the ones in whatsapp(apple emoji's) and the stock android weird alien faces.

20. gaming64 unregistered

Bet Samsung Keyboard doesn't have Black people emojis, Latino emojis, amd white people emojis. Best way to get rid of effing Matt Griening Simpson emoji crap!

I almost never really use the stock android emojis. Most of the time just Smiley faces :)

They need more choices. There's a lot of times I want to use a emoji that's not available
