Do you work in a factory? Then the factory worker emoji is ideal for you. Here we tell you its meaning and characteristics.
The massification and popularity of emoticons has generated a new way of communicating moods, feelings, reactions and even complete sentences. However, despite having the same Unicode encoding, its interpretation is subject to different cultural contexts depending on the environment of the person who uses them. This is the case of the factory worker emoji.
The arrival of emojis to the digital world has 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 conditions, numbers, and symbols.
This emoji was named “Man Factory Worker” and was added to Emoji 4.0 in 2016. It has two variations, both male and female.
Clearly the “Man Factory Worker” works as a welder in a factory, as his name implies. It is a combination of the Man and Factory emoji. We can see this emoticon carrying a burning welding machine in his hands. Due to the specific skills that this job needs, it is used mainly in relation to men, who are actually welders by profession and work in an industrial company or service station. Even users can apply it for people who have excellent welding skills, regardless of whether they do it in their own homes for personal purposes.
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.
