Real Life Emoji’s Are Just Plain Scary

Non-profit group Innocence en Danger has created a campaign to highlight the dangers of children talking to strangers online by creating emoji’s using real human faces. The emjoi has long been used as a series of cartoony like images to show off emotions in text messages, instant messaging and skype. The goal of the adverting campaign is to draw attention to the issue of sexual predators who roam online chat services looking to meet children and by using emoji’s gain their trust.

The word emoji is a Japanese creation meaning picture (e) and letter (moji). While emoji’s have been around since the birth of texting and mobile phones, it is the terrible use that they are used for that is the driving force behind this campaign. Innocence en Danger is hoping that by seeing these creepy images parents and children alike will learn that when chatting online to strangers you never know how they are, even if they are using the emoji’s and to be careful because you never know who could be on the other end of the computer/phone.

Hopefully this campaign will take off and get awareness out to the serious issue of online sexual predators preying on children online.
