We all know this situation. You are texting with your friend/spouse/colleague and a message gets mis-interpreted. Or, you notice that the other person is actually online but not responding to your request. All these interpretations are a result of what Mischa Coster calls ‘digital non-verbal communications’.
One of the main elements in this type of communication is Emoji. Little pictures of 😉 faces, 🙏 hands, 🙈 animals … meant to give your message just that right amount of context.
- But do they actually provide context?
- What is the background of Emoji?
- What is the most effective way to use them?
In this inspiration seminar Mischa Coster, 👨🏫 media psychologist, will guide you into the world of Emoji. History, context, application, research studies … all meant to help you become a more effective communicator.
Say it with Emoji! 😍
