What Are The Least Used Emoji? Here's How To Add The File Folder And More To Your Next Text Message

ByMehak Anwar

We are all pretty in-tune with the most frequently used emoji, because chances are you or someone you know uses them. Whether it's a classic red heart, the face wearing sunglasses, or the see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil monkey triplets, your frequently used emoji are most likely to include things that would make sense to insert into normal conversation. But what about the least frequently used emoji? You know, all those other emoji no one really cares about? What about the lost, abandoned, sad emoji that don't really pertain to anything in a normal interaction and never get a chance to see the light of day?

If we subscribe to the idea that emoji are a language, it would make sense to be as well-versed as possible in all the options you have. Like learning a new language, the bigger the vocabulary you have, the more you'll be able to express, leading to more robust conversations overall. Emoji use is really no different, and it's handy to have possible potential uses for as many of these little pictographs as possible.

I took the liberty of finding some of the least popular emoji and creating a guide for all you text-savvy millennials to make sure no emoji is left behind. Here are three emoji that could use a little more love — and how to make sure they get it:

1. The File Folder

Use it to tell your bae you're thinking about them:

Use it to make yourself more endearing when you're having computer issues:

Use it to seduce your cute co-worker:

2. Mailbox with Lowered Flag

Use it to let a relative know you're still waiting on that graduation money!

Use it if you're Noah and Allie from The Notebook:

3. The Squared VS Emoji

Use it for anything related to Victoria's Secret:

Use it whenever you need to throw out the phrase "very sexy":

Go nuts and say that you're Very Sad you won't be looking Very Sexy tonight because you can't go to Victoria's Secret to prepare for your big date:
