Unbelievably, the same year that emojis GET A F*$#ING MOVIE, researchers at an Israeli university decided it was a perfectly rational & scientific idea to study 549 participants from 29 different countries and whether or not they are perceived as less competent or professional based on how often they use emojis in workplace correspondence.  Yes, apparently THAT needed a funded study by a major university.  NEWSFLASH – DON’T USE EMOJIS ON WORK CORRESPONDENCE IF YOU WANT TO APPEAR COMPETENT.  EMOJIS ARE FOR INFORMAL COMMUNICATION ONLY!  Thank God someone PROVED it…
