Transcript for New book claims emojis can help relationships
And I need a little bit of audience participation here. How many people think that men D women have trouble communicating? I love that. Fonsi, you work here. Your vote doupts couldn't. We all know that but there could be a secret weapon on your cell phone. Emojis. Emojis. This is a terrifying story. I know. This actually is about a book called "The emoji code," now in this they say men are likely to understand the tone of a text if you add an emoji to it. Okay. Definitely true. It is true. Yes. I'm going to give you an example, George. Say that you and I we finish work and George and I want to hang out so George techs his wife and says I'm going out with my friends and she's, fine, do whatever you want. That's cool, right? I would say -- No, that's not cool unless you get the little smiley face emoji afterwards. What if you get the eye roll. What happens if you get this emoji? This means no, it's the mean face emoji. That means no. We can get that. Like this one here if you get that, of course, danger, danger, avert. Go home. Yes. You like that? But they were saying men actually -- we need two forms of communication to get it. We need to draw you pictures? You need to draw us pictures. If I got fine cover you want. I'm in big trouble. You don't need a picture. No. This is the thing I personally would think if I got fine do whatever you want that would mean I have to go home. A lot of guys know it but try to ignore it. You said fine. Here's another thing, though, they say people who don't use emojis you're challenged because it's a digital world right now and they say not using an emoji is like not changing the tone of your voice when you have a conversation. That's a lot of pressure. That's a lot. So I can guarantee you right now you guys are getting a lot of smiley faces from me from now on. There we go. So using emojis makes us better people, better communicators. Better communicators. Can't use the English language anymore. No. Thank you for that in that's what I got. Spread the word to everybody. That is amazing. Just doing your job. Smiley face. What's your favorite? My favorite emoji, I love the thumb's up. You give me that a lot. And clap. I like the two big eyes. The scary eyes. I'm confused. Some I don't know what they mean. I'll tell you later.
