It’s all about the emojis, no matter what platform you’re on- a picture can tell a thousand words – and in 2016, a few tiny icons strewn together, could be a novel.

Spreading the love

One sure-fire way to receive multiple likes is to create a selfie caption that makes your followers smile. Everyone loves a caption that gives them a little pick-me-up.
