Emojis have grown in use considerably in recent years. It may be easy to dismiss emojis as inconsequential to traditional textual communication, but the reality is people are more likely to express themselves and indicate tone through emoji. In global settings, many people believe that emojis make it easier to communicate across language barriers.
By some estimates, more than 10 billion emojis are sent every day in various electronic messaging mediums. With the use of chat and mobile platforms only increasing today, there is growing attention on the volume of emojis being created and their long-term impact, particularly in eDiscovery.
