According to a study from the International Conference on System Sciences, using emojis in your work emails doesn't make you look immature; it actually makes you look more professional.

 

Researchers found that we've all gotten so used to emojis helping us convey a tone when we're texting that we wish we could see that in our work emails too.

 

Teh study says "the usage of happy and ironic [emojis] significantly shapes the subtext of a message. Senders can use [them] to soften their email messages."
