How to use raising hands emoji

Perfect for a birthday, party or just to show you’re excited about something - the Raised Hands emoji are one of the many multi purpose tools in the ever expanding messaging tool box. An example of how to use this emoji would be if you received back favourable exam results that would allow you to get into the school you wanted to go. You could message your friends or family something like: Guys I passed the test! 🙌 Due to the open palm expression of the Raising Hands emoji and the tiny particles above the hands - some people like to use this symbol as a pair of double high fives. In this case, the symbol is good for reacting to messages with a positive tone. For example, let’s say it is your friend that tells you they got perfect marks on the test; simply reacting with 🙌 can either show you are high fiving them or raising your hands in celebration for their success.
