    Yes, you have made me think just how some of the Glyphs could be utilised by major players and not to sell too cheaply.
    Much like the bank emoji this Glyph could have a wider audience and a .com?

    Times a-changing MapleDots. It's fine you feel that way, but keep your finger on the pulse at least. This thread alone shouts movement.

    No one's saying to have an emoji only based main business, for now they work just fine to complement an existing successful site. Take into consideration though this wildly successful emoji-based site ❤️❤️❤️.ws

    My gem emoji [​IMG] .ws sold to a lucky dude for a modest 2k recently.

    I see value in them because the age-old adage "a picture is worth more than a thousand words" cannot be more defined but in an emoji.

    Finally, MapleDots, when you are ready, I might just have an emoji with your name written all over it:

    HaHa... you might just have me hooked!!

    Yes I see your point and have responded in a post since.

    Like I said before..... I am never to proud to learn a lesson and I see now how the use of emoji domains could come in handy.

    I was thinking as a business address it would not be feasible but for some of the other uses they are perfect.

    I'm actually the guy that bought that! So I can confirm that price at 2k. I have to note though, that the sale was before Michael Cyger put out his guide to emoji domains and then had the interview with Matan and Jon Roig on DomainSherpa, so the prices were much lower then, they all seemed to have bumped up since.

    I'm actually going to be the end user for this domain though! While most of the emoji domains I've purchased have been investments, this one is actually going to be launched as a business. I won't say what yet, but it's on it's way.

    Also, I totally agree about the picture being world a thousand words. Emoji are compelling, and they aren't going away any time soon (if ever).

    Well Made my Move Today.....covered all six combos.....obviously one"star" looks better than the other! Good thing I grabbed both! BTW yes always CHECK your computer version of your EMOJI as some will show up different than they appear on your phone/ios system such as the "small" star here, which is actully the big normal golden star on the iphone emoji.


    None the less , you shouldn't have a hard time guessing what this stands for ;)....well When Drake is ready to buy one, I'll be ready to sell it or all to him :)




    (SORRY EMOJI failed to load correctly working on it but have to leave my PC for a while)



    ps......Just found this Thread and the EMOJI hype about a week ago....Had a convo with my best friend last year that I bet that will be the next "big thing" $train.......well...I was thinking right , looks like I'm a little late for singles...but still way ahead of the emoji game if you as me as it's just about to blast off :)

    ps.....if you doubt the emoji crazy...I'm 32...I would take a closer look at the younger generation and how their lives (including ours) are consumed with social media.....and the rise of the EMOJI in everything!

    Well guys sorry I had trouble laoding the emoji yesterday, I can't edit my first post any longer so I will try here.

    The 6 Emojis Domain are a


    [​IMG][​IMG] .ws

    . ws

    If it's not showing they are:

    All three "Earths/World + Star" as in the two main golden Stars in the emojis. :)

    If you haven't guessed by now it can stand for a few t things but the main one I was aiming for is

    "WORLD/STAR" ;)

    LOL hey all joking aside, and the "sad " fact I can't even get my emoji to show up properly even though in my email and on phone it shows perfect. I just like thinking ahead! Joking aside , It feels good knowing I have the The EMOJI equivalent of one of the Largest Websites with $99Mil Yearly Revenue . :)

    It's a gamble but at least I feel like I'm ahead in position for once.

    btw...I don't care for WS , I think it it promotes too much negativity in our world.

    I'm just looking for my gold :)

    Yes, I just sent one in my iphone.
    Just add the www.
    along with your emoji and of course don't forget the ".WS" and it will be a clickable link.

    I have an iphone and it is a few years old. I have it for work. My personal is a Samsung Galaxy. I just checked and my iphone is a version 8.4.1 So, I sent myself a text from iphone to Galaxy. All i did was www.(insert emoji here).ws and it went directly to the site. It was clickable within the text message area of both iphone, and galaxy.

    So, 2 questions
    1) Are you sure you have updated your phone?
    2) Are you sure you are going to an active site that someone forwarded correctly?

    Ok, I figured it out. You have to add the http://(emoji).ws for it to work on an iphone.

    If you enter it just like this, it shows a preview of the website instead of the link. But, if you add a period at the beginning and the end, then it works. And the iphone removes the periods so you just see the link. And they look so good!!

    so do it like this: .https://B-).ws.

    For example you can simply tap the ☮ emoji and then .com

    Nope, that didn't work for me. If I add the http at the beginning it brings up a preview of the website though.
