All of the characters in the Emoticons block are emoji.[3][4]

Basic Smiling and frowning faces are defined in the Miscellaneous Symbols block and additional emoticons were later added to the Supplemental Symbols and Pictographs block in Unicode 8.0.

Diversity[edit]

The Emoticons block has eight emoji that represent people or body parts. They can be modified using U+1F3FBโ€“U+1F3FF to provide for a range of skin tones using the Fitzpatrick scale:[4]
