An absolute classic and an emoji which can convey a wide range of meanings and suggestions – from mischievous to innocent, playful to knowingly – depending on the context. It began life as a text based smiley, written ‘;-)’, and it still maintains its semicolon wink in a number of versions. It can be used to signify that a statement is a joke or sarcastic, or that you shouldn’t be taken too seriously. It’s frequently used as a form of mild flirtation, particularly on dating sites or on instant messaging. Occasionally when used with a combination of other emojis, it can go from suggestive and flirty to direct and overtly sexual very quickly. That is why, context truly is everything!!
