🆘 meaning - SOS Button

You’ve probably used this one the last time you found yourself on an awkward date and in need of assistance from a friend. Most of us usually use this when texting our friend about something that happened and when in need of their advice, or perhaps when we’ve done something and need them to cover up for us. In any case, this is one of the most misused emojis, but hey, we do use it in a way you use it, so no complaining, as long as it gets us all the help we need whenever we need it, right?
