The Met Office has announced that they will be using emoji’s in future TV broadcasts to engage our social media obsessed generation.
Ever since the launch of popular social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, our generation no longer know how to communicate with others using proper words or sentences.
The Met Office audience ratings show that less and less people from this generation are watching weather broadcast. Experts believe this is because of the lack of memes and emoji’s being used.
Weather reporter, Bill, says; “Nobody from this generation gets excited by weather reports anymore, the old-school sun and rain clouds don’t appeal to our audience, this is why we are introducing emoji’s to get our reports across and engage people with them.”
You can no longer have a conversation with someone via email or text without an emoji creeping in somewhere. People take offense when you don’t send them one, believing that you hate them if you forget to add a kissy face at the end followed by a load of laughing faces.
Forget the use of ‘lol’ anymore, it’s all about the crying with laughter face. Weather reporters better get a few of them in when they crack the odd Jack frost and bikini weather jokes or they might as well not bother.
Keep your eyes out for those sunglasses emoji faces this summer on your local weather stations! And remember, if they don’t use them then their reports are all a lie- never believe an emojiless word.
