The arrival of emojis in the digital world have made it easier for users to express their feelings in conversations on WhatsApp and other platforms. They are generally divided into six categories including yellow faces, food, animals, weather, numbers and symbols.

Currently, it is very common to replace words or phrases with an emoji that expresses exactly what is meant.

Today we will discuss about the WhatsApp hole emoji, which we can see as a round black hole (which is supposed to be extremely deep) on a surface (which we cannot see). It looks like a maintenance hole without a cover. It can be used in different contexts such as traps, failures of any kind, and even unexpected problems. It is even normally used accompanied by a man emoji to denote a kind of short story of failure.

As young people say today: “I’m in the hole”, is another use that could be given to this emoticon, to denote that the person is going through a complicated situation and has no idea what to do.

It is important to mention that, despite having the same Unicode encoding, each platform can vary the design of each emoji to adapt to its operating system or interface. On many occasions this generates a great difference in the interpretation of the same symbol.
