Lastly for a bit of a challenge, we worked with Merriam Webster on an emoji quiz to sort the emoji experts from the rest.
Let's start with this one. Actually, when you take the quiz, the order is random. So you could start anywhere.
There's so much going on that I encourage you to check out the @WorldEmojiDay accounts on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for the latest.
