Where does 👍 - thumbs up emoji come from?
Who uses 👍 - thumbs up emoji?

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

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 โ€œOKโ€ or โ€œGot it.โ€ 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 โ€œAwesome!โ€ or Great job!โ€. Someone might comment โ€œThat looks great! ๐Ÿ‘โ€ to celebrate a piece of online artwork. Another person might post โ€œPlease subscribe to my channel if you like my content! ๐Ÿ‘โ€ to solicit support or to say thanks.

As with much of language, the thumbs-up emoji can also be used sarcastically: โ€œWay to ruin the party ๐Ÿ‘.โ€ Itโ€™s also sometimes used in reference to the โ€œThis guyโ€ meme (e.g., โ€œWhoโ€™s got two thumbs and a ticket to the premiere of Black Panther? This guyโ€).
