According to a new survey, it’s finally becoming acceptable to use emojis at work.

Researchers found 22.5% of Americans say they now use emojis in business emails regularly.

55% of people think emojis can be useful at work because they help convey a “tone,” which can help avoid misunderstandings.  35% like to use them because they’re quicker when you’re responding to someone on your phone.

The survey also found that when we’re not at work, we’re all constantly using emojis.  The average person uses 34.7 emojis between their emails, messages, and social media posts daily.
