Hillary Clinton liked using the emoji so much that, in 2012, she emailed someone for help with her new Blackberry:
"Here's my question: on this new berry can I get smiley faces?"
According to a recent survey of 650+ employees and managers, more than half of workers say they have used an emoji to communicate at work.
Better yet, more managers than workers approved of using an emoji at work.
Personally I like using :) in my emails sometimes because it creates a friendlier message, as communications in the business world can be dry and serious.
How do you feel about using :) or similar emoji at work? Is it acceptable?
