When Should You Worry?
As we’ve noted, many emojis will have multiple meanings. It’s critical to make sure you understand the context of the post. Kids and teens can signal when parents are around with codes like 9, CD9, and Code9. Using KPC (keeping parents clueless) and 99 (parents gone) are red flags that require attention.
Are You Lost in Translation?
The websites Emoji Translate and Emojipedia are powerful tools to use to decipher the language of emojis. Hidden messages sent through emojis can change over time. It’s important to stay informed and do some research to keep on top of what’s trending. Don’t be afraid to be basic. It’ll mean you’re in the know.
