Using These Emojis Can Make You Look Old

Emojis may be a fun thing to add to messages for family and friends, but did you know you could be aging yourself with the choice of emojis you use?

Well, apparently Gen Z is judging you based on your choice of emoji, and that’s particularly true when it comes to the thumbs up emoji. While it may seem like an easy way to show your approval, apparently Gen Z doesn’t see it that way. In fact, a 24-year-old recently shared on Reddit that a thumbs up should “never (be) used in any situation,” noting it’s “hurtful.”

“No one my age in the office does it,” he writes, “ but the Gen X people always do it. Took me a bit to adjust and get [it] out of my head that it means they're mad at me.”

Overall, a new survey found that 24% of Gen Z thinks the thumbs up emoji makes you look old, but it isn’t the only one. The Top 10 emojis that make you look old include:

  • Thumbs up (24%)
  • Red love heart (22%)
  • OK hand (20%)
  • Tick (17%)
  • Poo (17%)
  • Loudly crying face (16%)
  • Monkey eye cover (15%)
  • Clapping hands (10%)
  • Lipstick kiss mark (10%)
  • Grimacing face (9%)
