If you’ve on the internet long enough, chances are you’ve come across a domain name that’s all emoji. Domain owners can register for emoji-domains, which are nothing but emojis replacing the standard letters in a domain name. This, however, doesn’t affect the link; it’s just the front-end that’s decorated with emojis. But all that’s just for domain owners. But there’s a tool out there for you and I — the ones who don’t have domain names. Linkmoji is a tool where you can paste any web link and convert it into an emoji link.
How it works
- Copy and paste any URL into Linkmoji, and click Create Linkmoji.
- The website will automatically convert the link, replacing the letters with smileys and frowns.
You can then copy the emoji link and share it with your friends. They will see only the emojis and not the entire link. Once they click on it, they will be redirected to the webpage you linked it to. Be wary, though, the redirection isn’t as fast as you want it to be and regular internet surfers would be hesitant to click on emojis for fear of spam and malicious sites.
The system returns a standaard emoji link but you can customize the emojis if you want to. Click on the Customize button that appears under the system-generated link. You can choose from a gallery of emojis to create your link. the emojis you want and delete the ones yo don’t want. However, remember that your link should have at least 6 emoji characters and shouldn’t have been used before.
Emojis nowadays are varied and stylised. Every social network and every mobile OS has its own set of emojis. You can’t expect to see all those emojis on Linkmoji. The tool only uses the basic emojis, most of them being smiles, fruits, and vegetables.
