If youโ€™re over 30 they are still emoticons :triumph:

or should I say if you were an internet user in the early 2000โ€™s :wink:

Emoticons are actually different from emoji. Not massively different, but enough for the different naming.

Emoji are completely standard text characters - part of Unicode, and are rendered differently on each OS.

Emoticons are images rather than text, usually not vector, and generally always render the same on every OS.
