How to use face with tongue emoji

Perfect for making jokes or whilst chatting with friends, the Face with Tongue is an all around good messaging choice. Let’s say you are conversing with your friend group and you decide to make a quip about your friends choice of sweater. In this scenario, you say the sweater kind of makes him look like a chicken - you could then follow this up with the face alone, implying that you are just messing around. Or you could accompany some text like: 😛 just kidding! Another more uncommon usage is to show hungriness or the desire to eat something. In this case, you could respond to an invitation for food or react to a social media post with the Tongue Face and perhaps some complimentary text, showing that you are hungry. Although arguably, the Face Savoring Food or the Drooling Face would be far better choices.
