SwiftKey Emoji Report

SwiftKey analyzes more than one billion pieces of emoji data across a wide range of categories to learn how speakers of 16 different languages and regions use emoji. Among the findings in the report were:

  • French​ use​ four times​ as many heart emoji than other languages, and it’s the only language for which a ‘smiley’ is not #1
  • Flowers and plants emoji are used at four times the average rate by ​Arabic​ speakers
  • Russian​ speakers use ​ three times​  as much romantic emoji than the average
  • Australia’s​  emoji use characterizes it as the land of vice & indulgence, using ​ double​  the average amount of alcohol­themed emoji, 65% more drug emoji than average and leading for both junk food and holiday emoji
