When even speaking is too much work, there are always pictures. DigiDay tells us that emoji search has grown from a joke to an actual trend. So much so, in fact, that measurement vendor Moat has partnered with “visual messaging platform” Emogi to measure performance of branded emojis and stickers. And it’s not just emojis: visual search company ViSenze reported in February that they had processed 350 million shopping image queries in 2016, a 250% increase over 2015. If a picture really is worth a thousand words, think of the time being saved by weary consumers.
