If the difference between emojis is too subtle, yes it's not worth adding more.
Nine reaction emojis on my board. I have found half of them on Google. The other half, I made them myself.
From left to right :
- Malaise. (Cringe.)
- Navré... (Sorry...)
- QU-QUOI?! (WH-WHAT?!)
- J'ADORE! (I LOVE!)
- J'aime! (I like!)
The angry one is so agressive it has barely been used serioulsy, mostly for irony. The ''Meh'' () isn't really used either, it makes the giver looks grumpy and it was kinda the point.
All the other ones are used regularly. My community is known for its harshness and those emojis fit the overall ambiance.
I've created many other original emojis too, come take a look : depotoir.ca
