Emojis have come far, even making headway into the professional world. Nearly six in ten people said they used emojis at work. Despite that high share of people, almost three-fourths of people reported being hesitant about first using emojis in the workplace, according to Adobe.

Emojis can add value to communications between colleagues. In a professional environment, nearly eight in ten people said that emoji use has a positive effect on the likability of the person that a worker is communicating with and boosts their credibility.

Not all emojis are made equal though. The top three favorite emojis from the survey include the laughing crying face, red heart, and kissing face blowing a kiss emoji.
