Who uses 👓 - glasses emoji ?

Often used in social-media posts relating to eyewear, the glasses emoji is also used to indicate something with a view or that can be seen with a bit of direction (for example, a museum exhibit, movie, or a beautiful lookout point).

It’s also used to indicate brain power. Though eyeglasses have become a hot fashion accessory in recent decades, they still imply bookishness or braininess to a degree. Because people without glasses don’t enjoy reading? Hmm.
