The Most Useless Emojis


Juliet Sherman, Author

There are some emojis that are constantly used – such as the laughing emoji, skull, and the hearts. But others are totally useless and are collecting cobwebs on your keyboard. These all are just entirely pointless to have been made. So, here are some of the most un-used and useless emojis:

1. The floating man emoji. He looks like this: 🕴️This emoji is a person who, in a suit weirdly, is floating in mid-air. It was made by the Unicode Consortium in 2014. The looks of the emoji are based on the musician Peter Tosh.
I don’t know why anyone would ever need this, as this is such a random one. I can’t imagine a time when sending this would be necessary.

2. All the clocks: 🕐🕑🕒🕓🕔🕕🕖🕗🕘🕙🕚🕛🕜🕝🕞🕟🕠🕡🕢🕣🕤🕥🕦🕧 There is 24 of them total.  They all depict random times – like noon or one-thirty. I mean, you could use these if you were telling someone what time you have plans or something, but it would be so much easier just to type that out. Apparently, they are meant to be used by saying things like “Time flies”, “Midnight snack” or “afternoon tea”. But who actually uses them like that? I personally would never use these, unless by accident.

3. The Aerial Tramway Emoji. It looks like this: 🚡 It is a cart that you ride on to transport you from one place to another, like up a mountain you are ski-ing on. Do I even need to explain how unhelpful this is? I mean, when would you use this?

4. The pager emoji. It looks like this: 📟  No one ever would use this, especially ON a phone. Pagers were used a long while ago, in a way to communicate when phones weren’t really a thing, so why? Just why?

5. The curly loop. Looks like this: ➰ It doesn’t do any harm, just a single loop. It just really isn’t used. There is also the random 2 loop emoji too.
