Don’t be haunted by the many ways the ghost emoji is used! Ghosts represent all kinds of thingsโ€”the past, the unknown, people who have died, people who want to be invisible, premonitions or “feelings,” paranormal events, and more. There are even a whole bunch of words for the … thing: specter, spirit, spook, ghoul, phantasm, apparition, wraith, and poltergeist, to name a few.

So basically we needed the ghostย emoji … bad. Itย was approved as part ofย Unicode 6.0ย in 2010 and added toย Emoji 1.0ย in 2015.ย In most platforms, it’s shown smiling, and, for some reason, it’s tongue is usually hanging out. The Google ghoul is actually winking, and the Emojidex ghost is the only one that is dark and ghoulish … boo!
