Our word selection and kind of emoji we use show how smart we are in rescuing ourselves from harm. On Facebook and other social media handles, emoji and our word choice are used to indicate our mood, status and location. But more importantly, Brian Rosenick writes Use of Crisis Helpline which adds up emoji and words might rescue us from despair.
“They can do this because Crisis Text Line does something radical for a crisis counseling service: It collects a massive amount of data on the 30 million texts it has exchanged with users. While Netflix and Amazon are collecting data on tastes and shopping habits, the Crisis Text Line is collecting data on despair,” he says.
To see bad events before they occur, the language that people use can be of great use and in this way, emojis are not a waste of image but become instrumental for our daily living wherever you may be in the world.
