A full moon with a human face that smiles sideways, complicity or sarcasm? Surely you sent it on these occasions
There are more than three thousand emojis to communicate through WhatsApp, however there are some that go unnoticed, or it is assumed that the meaning is the same for everyone, that is why here we tell you the meaning of the most popular.
Emojis came to reinvent the way in which users communicate through digital platforms, especially since complete words or phrases can be replaced with a single image, this is the case of the full moon with a face.
This is a classic satellite image, with a smiling human face. The Moon generally appears as a dark circle with a face that smiles slightly, that is why it can be used for direct representation or to give a touch of irony and sarcasm. Also, this emoji is used in the contexts related to the night, fairy tales, and is also sometimes part of jokes.
The Full Moon Face emoji appears in the Apple version with a voluminous and even gloomy face. In the case of emojidex it is absolutely creepy, but in all other versions, a schematic face appears. Ironically, it doesn’t have much to do with the Full Moon Emoji.
WhatsApp: What does the smiling moon emoji mean?
The eyes of the moon on Apple and WhatsApp look to the left, and give the impression that they are looking to the side, but the faces of Samsung and Facebook look straight ahead. The expression that appears in the Google version is much more similar to the emoji with the mischievous smile, especially because of the shape of its eyes.
Google previously conjured up Lenny Face with this emoji, and Microsoft’s eyes seemed to be closed. Meanwhile, on Twitter it is very similar to his “new moon face”, and Facebook was showing a simple yellow smile.
Full Moon Face was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name “Full Moon With Face” and a few years later it was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
