Who uses πŸ‘ Thumbs Up emoji?

In some cultures, including Australia, Greece, and the Middle East, the thumbs-up gesture can be considered obscene, equivalent to β€œUp yours!”

In many Western cultures, the thumbs-up emoji enjoys a wide range of use in text messages, social-media posts, and other forms of digital communication. On its own, a thumbs-up emoji can indicate β€œOK” or β€œGot it.” For example, if one person asked to meet another at 2:30, the other person could acknowledge the appointment with a thumbs-up emoji. The thumbs-up emoji also frequently punctuates text, sometimes in strings for additional emphasis, to indicate positivity, agreement, approval, encouragement, or assurance, an equivalent to β€œAwesome!” or Great job!”. Someone might comment β€œThat looks great! πŸ‘β€ to celebrate a piece of online artwork. Another person might post β€œPlease subscribe to my channel if you like my content! πŸ‘β€ to solicit support or to say thanks.

As with much of language, the thumbs-up emoji can also be used sarcastically: β€œWay to ruin the party πŸ‘.” It’s also sometimes used in reference to the β€œThis guy” meme (e.g., β€œWho’s got two thumbs and a ticket to the premiere of Black Panther? This guy”).
