Update Emoji for Galaxy S2
Edited by Nerissa Avisado, Lynn
To mass media and communication experts, the medium used to relay a message is a very important factor in its interpretation. While face-to-face interaction remains the best form of communication at any given time, there is also much to be said about written communication. Apart from the traditional use of paper and ink to convey a message, written communication has assumed many forms, including email messages, SMS, and even snail mail, which all made significant contributions to human interaction.
Regardless of any written form of communication, there is always the difficulty on the part of readers to grasp the original emotion and intent of the sender. In some cases this obstacle can be remedied with more intricate and detailed writing. However, most people do not have the time and skill to write literary masterpieces to get a point across. So how can messages and emotions be accurately expressed to the recipient using the least amount of characters possible? The answer lies in the wonderful invention of the all-powerful emoticon, or its more popularized variant: Emoji. The use of Emojis is the simplest way for people to know how you feel even without saying anything at all. And if you have a Samsung Galaxy S2, you can enjoy the full range of Emojis available on your mobile. You can have lots of fun with Emojis as you share your feelings to all your family and friends.
