Using Japanese Emoji on Facebook Update

UPDATE: Due to constant updates in iOS, the information in this blog post is no longer relevant.  (3/25/2013)

A few months ago, I described how to enable the Japanese keyboard on an iPhone to access the Emoji characters.  It’s not difficult to do, but if you don’t need a Japanese keyboard, it seemed kind of silly to install it just to get those Emoji.

But with iOS 4.3.5, you can enable Emoji in any country, on any iPhone without installing the Japanese keyboard.  It’s super easy to do, so get out your iPhone and let’s do this.

Just as stated in the original article, first go to the iOS Settings App.

Next, scroll down until you see General.  Tap General.

Then, you need to tap International Keyboards.  And then tap Add New Keyboard.  Scroll down to the E’s and tap EmojiAnd you’re done!

this how my list of installed keyboards looks. i have english, japanese and emoji keyboards installed.

And that’s it!  Now you’ve got Emoji on your iPhone and you’re ready to rock and/or roll.  The Emoji keyboard is always accessible.  But just a heads up, not every website can handle Emoji, but in my experience, it seems like there are a lot of them.  Some will change the look of the characters, or some will only display them for other iPhone users.

Alright.  Hope this helps.  If you want to see a list of the Emoji characters and get a little bit of the background, please check out my original post about it HERE.

  1. Love emoji. But would like to use it on Facebook. When I write a post and use emoji it is there. When it posts they are not. How do o make them stay and be viewed?
    Thanx. Jerri
