Do you Bitmoji? Or maybe the question should be, do you have a Bitmoji? Though I really like it as a verb instead of a noun…. Anyway, if the answer is no – and I don’t say these kinds of things often – you most definitely should! Ashley Parker in her New York Times article, “My Bitmoji, My Better Self”, sums it up perfectly, “Bitmoji is basically a personalized emoticon, designed by you, to look like a more delightful, caricatured version of your actual self…. After choosing everything from face shape and eye color to hairstyle and outfit, you can place your avatar into a range of poses: popping out of a cake to wish a friend happy birthday, say, or dressed as a “Game of Thrones” White Walker, warning that winter is coming.”
Last February, one of my very favorite clients and I were texting, and then all of a sudden, she sent me her Bitmoji with the “Team Awesome” pose. And that was it, I was hooked. I made my own Bitmoji, and I’ve been using it ever since in all kinds of ways – to send smooches to my love (see the “Muah” Bitmoji above), to wish friends a Happy Birthday, to say goodnight to my kids, to let my work associate know that I’m taking care of the situation and so much more. The fun is endless and laugh out loud at times – I kid you not.
One of my favorites is “Yo” pictured here. This is perfect when you are texting back and forth with someone and then they go MIA. “Yo” says it just right and in a cute, silly way – “Where’d ya go?” My sister and I have a fun exchange in which we poke each other, which only sisters can do. I could go on and on….
What are your thoughts on the Bitmoji subject? Have you ever Bitmojied? Or maybe I should say, do you have a Bitmoji, and if so, do you use it like crazy? I can’t wait to hear….
