100+ Digital-Friendly Symbols to Use on Social Media โ˜บ โœ” ๐Ÿ’‹

Tags: Best Practices

As a copywriter, I’m constantly searching for ways to spice up my 100-character quips for brands. Recently online chatter has turned to emoji, the Japanese characters made popular with the rise of messaging on smartphones, as its next trendy way of expression.

But I think emojis have a major problemโ€”they are limiting. Typically the symbols will remain unique to the device on which they were created.ย They don’t show up on all mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers. Here’s a hack: Make your writing pop by copy and pasting simpler, yet more universal, symbols.ย ย 

Here are some examples of how you can use standard symbols in your social media statuses.

  • HELLOOooโšฌโšฌยทยท
  • April โ˜‚ bring May โ€
  • โœˆ #AirportTip โ€” 2 dollars at Skycap can save you 20 minutes in line. โœˆ
  • Do you wanna build a โ˜ƒ?

Most of the symbols below can be found by opening a Spreadsheet on Google Drive and inserting symbols into your text. Then, copy and paste it to your status. Another trick is to simply search online for the object you want followed by the word “symbol.” Then, copy it from a search result.

Take a look at some of my favorite symbols to utilize.
