    Are they smileys because they move? Or is emoji only applicable when you refer to the specific emoji range?
    Emoji are available in Unicode - they're basic symbols that are displayed differently depending on what phone/browser/messaging service you're using. As opposed to the TSR smileys, which are just image files, and look the same on any device. :yes:

    The above are all 'Smileys', it says so when you hover over the symbol. And you select them from the 'Smilie list'. :noway: Emoticons are also an acceptable term. :pierre:

    My day in one emoji: 🆒

    Second line: "Emoji are used much like emoticons". Some emoji are smileys, but not all smileys are emoji. :fuhrer:

    Emoticon - a representation of a facial expression such as a smile or frown, formed by various combinations of keyboard characters and used in electronic communications to convey the writer's feelings or intended tone. :-)

    Okay, it seems I've been incorrect in using Emoticon and Smiley interchangeably all these years. You win that one. :grumble:

    Doesn't change the fact that emoji are unicode-based, while TSR itself calls smileys smileys. :hmmm:

    Sorry to burst your :bubbles: again.

    So we have come to conclusion that all Unicode emoticons are emoji but not all Unicode emoji are emoticons. The more you know...

    Learning together is fun. :hugs:
