Where does 😛 - face with tongue emoji come from?

See Next Word

The face with tongue emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.1 in 2012 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. Its original name was Face with Stuck-Out Tongue. The emoji is pretty goofy on all platforms, but we note that Microsoft and Google’s versions, seen here in a chart from Emojipedia, has a bit of a medical feel to it. “Say, AHHHH!”


Who uses 😛 - face with tongue emoji ?

Not quite a raspberry (you know: “phhhhhhtttt!”), the tongue with face emoji evokes a silly mood, a way of saying, “I’m kind of embarrassed because that was a dumb thing to do, but I’ll own it!”

It’s also a way of saying, “I feel goofy,” and, at the other end of the spectrum, “I’m feeling a bit frisky!”

This emoji is a more innocent way of expressing a kind of playful sexiness, but it can also be used in a less savory, lascivious wayโ€”be careful!

And then, of course, there are the adorable dog pics. It’s probably the utter silliness of this emoji that makes it even more popular than the actual dog face emoji. This one evokes a bit more humor when paired with a photo of a sweet puppy face, accented with a protruding tongue.
