Thanks to the rapidly increasing popularity of emojis, which allow us to express ourselves with a single small image, Mountain View's Unicode Consortium has revealed that an additional 38 new icons will be released in 2016.  The list has officially been finalised by a members vote.

Some of the most exciting new additions include emojis for a croissant, a clown face, an avocado and for those who love a good selfie there is even a hand holding a phone that depicts someone posing for a picture.
