Next in Text: Custom Emoji Keyboards

By Anna Dunn, December 1, 2015

New York-based Swyft Media—which made headlines with its “popemojis” during Pope Francis’ visit in September—has created custom-branded emoji keyboards, stickers, gifts and videos for more than 300 global brands and organizations (think Sony and MillerCoors) since its launch in 2012.

Associations can also find useful ways to implement the technology for events. Customized emoji options can help increase engagement as attendees tap, swipe and share them via text messages or email, as well as on social media, helping to spread the word about your event in a visual way.
