Which new emojis have you most excited?

There will also be bald, grey, ginger, and curly-haired faces added.

New food emojis will arrive as well, like mangoes, lettuce, cupcakes and mooncakes.

The top five most-used emojis on Facebook Messenger are, in order, the crying with laughter face, the hearts in eyes face, the blowing a kiss face, the heart emoji and the blushing cheeks face.

World Emoji Day is Tuesday, and Apple is getting into the spirit by recasting the photos on its executive team page as emojis.

World Emoji Day: Apple teases 70 new characters

Facebook now has over 2,800 emojis available for use, and some are more popular than others.

The 70 new emojis will be rolled out automatically in a free software update later this year.

The new emojis are meant to better represent the vast demographic of users, including all different hair types and skin tones, as well as more expressive faces.

Superhero emojis of both sexes, and animal emojis such as the kangaroo, peacock and lobster, will also be introduced in Apple's upcoming iOS 12 update later this year. Popular emojis include faces representing various emotions, animals and love hearts. We have to admit: the mooncake emoji looks particularly tasty.

To put all of this into perspective, the Unicode Consortium currently recognizes some 2,823 emoji, including pictograms for pretty much anything you can think of, such as the now-ubiquitous, almighty smiling pile of poo.
