How to use winking face emoji

The multi purpose emoji can be used in a variety of situations - and is especially good when poking fun or making a joke. For example, one of your friends sends you a picture of a shirt he bought with the words β€œCool Dude” printed on it. This of course, may be true - perhaps he is a cool dude. But you could respond jokingly: Not sure if that is entirely accurate πŸ˜‰

Where this emoji really shines is during flirty scenarios. Let’s take the above example - a potential romantic interest of yours buys a shirt with positive statement printed on it. This statement of course may or may not be true - but you message back regardless: Suits you πŸ˜‰

History of the πŸ˜‰ emoji
