New Feature: Easily Add Emoji to Your Social Media Content

Written by Laura Roeder

On September 12, 2019

Emoji can help you express your unique self on social. You can now easily add emoji to your social media content in just a few clicks! 😍

Okay, I’ll set the stage… 🎭

You’ve been there. Staring at your latest social media post and thinking, “It’s missing… something.” πŸ€”

Ah, the perfect emoji! πŸ’‘

Sure… you could pop open a new tab, search for “Cherry Blossom Emoji,” find the right page, copy it, navigate back to MeetEdgar, paste it in… 🀬

Or, you could use your brand-new emoji-picker, conveniently located exactly where you need it!  🀩

This is an image of our emoji-picker image in use. Easily select an emoji from a convenient drop-down of choices.

πŸ¦™ What you need to know:

  • Emojis are everywhere! From social posts and email subject lines, to Slack messages and texts from your family. πŸ§“
  • You can use emoji to express subtle (or not-so-subtle) emotions and reactions within your social posts. πŸ˜‡
  • Using the perfect emoji to share your feelings, or communicate your point of view, can stand out in a busy feed, connect with your audience on a personal level, and save you from depleting your limited character counts. 🎯

🍊How to use this feature:

  • When you’re creating content, click on the smiley icon below your text field. πŸ˜ƒ
  • Edgar will display a robust emoji library. Find the right emoji and click it. That easy. πŸ™Œ
  • Pro-tip: Use the emoji category icons to zip to a specific category! ⚽

Here’s another pro-tip: Maybe don’t overdo it (like I did in this article!) πŸ˜‰

🍊Here are a few of our favorites

Did you know the the MeetEdgar team is 100% remote?

We collaborate wherever we are, spanning multiple states and countries!

Emojis help us connect and communicate, so I pinged the team to share their favorites. Here are just a few:

Kevin,Β Product Director: πŸ’… (Nail Polish Emoji – the perfect stand-in for “fancy”)

Chad,Β Engineering Director: 🐊 (Crocodile Emoji – the perfect stand-in for… “alligator?”)

Maura,Β Digital Content Manager: πŸ™ˆ and 🀳 (Yes, that’s a “Selfie” emoji.)

Freya,Β People Ops Manager: ✨ and πŸ’© (Sparkles Emoji and Poo Emoji, but maybe not at the same time.)

Sarah, President: πŸ₯΄ (Woozy Face Emoji… I have no words.)

It’s okay to “have no words.” That’s what emoji are for!

What’s your favorite emoji? Let us know in the comments.
