Emojis to punctuate
Emojis can be used to punctuate a heavy bio. These key images not only help to break down the words into much more social media friendly sized bite chunks, but also give visual clues about the account. Here in the above example we can easier see when the account owner changes subject – much alike beginning a new paragraph.
Emojis used to infer
Emojis can enable you to list various facts in a visually clear and attractive way. Here we can see the account owner is from Great Britain, likes to travel, has a Snapchat ID, a work email and an email address to say hello to him on. He hasn’t had to write all of that information, but the visual clues and the bullet point layout has let us know it. By allowing users to infer, it cuts out lots of text which users may find boring to read.
