A Study Found You Shouldn’t Use Emojis in Work Emails

Could using too many emojis at work prevent you from getting promoted?  A new study says it’s possible.

Researchers in Tel Aviv found that people who use emojis in work emails or things like Slack messages tend to be seen as less authoritative.  And it doesn’t matter what your role is.  Even CEOs look weaker if they use them a lot.

The authors of the study say you don’t need to avoid them entirely.  But it might be a good idea to consider the context of the email first, and only use them sparingly.
