WHAT THE WORLD REALLY NEEDS
Intended Tone: serious, but in a playful way.
- •...is a way to indicate tone in emails and texts.
- •Sure, emojis go a long way in suggesting tone in texts.A well-timed 😜 or 👻 shows you're joking.
- •But emojis are subject to misinterpretation too.Consider: 😬. Is that an expression of anxiety? Excitement? It's open to interpretation!
- •Plus, emojis aren't appropriate in professional emails.
- •I need to be sure that my passive aggression/sarcasm is always perceived as such.
- •And having a tone indicator would probably prevent a lot of confusion/offense.This could bring the peace we need!
- •Who can I talk to about this issue?President Obama was the first person who came to mind, but I'm assuming he's busy. Help!
