Kolkata members seem to be using Emojis to communicate aspects of their personality and interests and it appears members gravitate towards some emojis more than others for self-expression.Dr. Sonali Gupta, a leading psychologist believes that an Emoji is a reflection of how language is evolving and the growth of visual communication in today’s world. “Gen Z prefers using emojis, as it becomes a tool to add substance to their narratives and allows them to provide a context in communication. It is no wonder that Emojis find their space even in a Tinder bio where they may become a simple reflection of today’s visual culture, bringing ease and a starting point for conversations. This ease is often perceived positively as someone being approachable or friendly across context,” she says.If you want to step up your Tinder bio game, communicate in the universal language that we all know and love.
