The popularity of emojis has soared since Apple added the emoji keyboard to iOS in 2011. Emojis are used by 92% of the online population, according to the Emoji Report by mobile messaging firm, Emogi. The Face with Tears of Joy 😂 emoji was even awarded Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2015.

Textline's new emoji picker (pictured above) lets you add a little personality to your text conversations.

Worried that using emojis is unprofessional? Don't be. Emojis remind your customers that they are talking to a human rather than a robot. They add a positive, friendly sentiment to your messages (depending on your choice of emoji, of course).

Our mission at Textline is to make text messaging a business as easy as texting a friend. If your company or organization is ready to start texting with customers, sign up for a Textline free trial.
