SwiftKey Emoji Report April 2015
ONE BILLION EMOJI SwiftKey analyzed more than one billion pieces of emoji data across a wide range of categories to learn how speakers of 16 diFerent languages and regions use emoji. The Indings in this report came from an analysis of aggregate SwiftKey Cloud data over a four month period between October 2014 and January 2015, and includes both Android and iOS devices.
This report will analyze languages and language variants (eg US vs Latin American Spanish) across 60 emoji categories. The Irst section identiIes ‘language leaders’ for each category, then compares emoji usage between English language speakers, sentiment across emoji and languages, and lists the most over-indexed emoji for the US.
This is followed by a breakdown of the more interesting categories, including a look how the leaders of each category compare to the average, visual representations of the data, and additional data on other categories not yet mentioned.
Note: as there are over 800 emoji, the frequency of any individual emoji is often small. The numbers referenced below (e.g. 0.29%) represent how often each emoji is used out of all emoji usage.
Findings of note: Canadiansscore highest in emoji categories some may consider to be more American (money, raunchy, violent, sports) Frenchusefour timesas many heart emoji than other languages, and it’s the only language for which a ‘smiley’ is not #1 ● Flowers and plants emoji are used at more than4Xthe average rate byArabicspeakers Russianspeakers usethree timesas much romantic emoji than the average Australia’semoji use characterizes it as the land of vice & indulgence, usingdoublethe average amount of alcohol-themed emoji, 65% more drug emoji than average and leading for both junk food and holiday emoji Americanslead for a random assortment of emoji & categories, including skulls, birthday cake, fire, tech, LGBT, meat and female-oriented emoji
