Adobe’s regular look at the world of emoji (we covered it in 2019) took a deep dive into how people feel about representation and inclusivity of the pictograms we’re using every day for communication. They talked to 7,000 users across seven countries (the US, the UK, Germany, France, Japan, Australian, and South Korea). The upshot: Many people aren’t thrilled with the current options.
Results of the Adobe Global Emoji Diversity & Inclusion Report are well represented in the full infographic below. Key findings are that only 54% of respondents feel their identity is best reflected by current emoji. That drops to 37% for those with disabilities. A full 83% of respondents want to see even more diversity and inclusivity in future emoji releases.
Responding to these findings, Adobe will partner with Emojination, an advocate for better emoji diversity that has already guided around 100 proposals to the Unicode Consortium, including the release of emoji for bagels, pinatas, boomerang, hijab, and bubble tea. The two organizations will “support the development of new inclusive emoji proposals and provide emoji education efforts to empower the creation of emoji proposals by all,” said Adobe in its press release.
