Yesterday, Facebook Messenger has introduced new emoji, increasing the total number to 1500, and they bring diversity. Until now, the application was considered sexist, because it didn’t have too many female-oriented emojis, so now, women have greater roles (a police office, surfer, swimmer, runner, dancer etc.). In addition, users can also choose from new skin tones.
